Unknown No Longer is “the latest step by the Virginia Historical Society to increase access to its varied collections relating to Virginians of African descent. Since its founding in 1831, the VHS has collected unpublished manuscripts, a collection that now numbers more than 8 million processed items.”

Unknown No Longer allows searches by:

First and Last name

Record Type *


and Unknown No Longer has African American Resource links as well as recommended primary and secondary sources.

*Not all names are indexed in the records so, for example, if you look at a newspaper clipping you should read the entire clipping for names included.
