With Google's now infamous detailed photos, it's rather easy to see how a town is laid out today. But what about 50, 100, or 150 years ago? Where are the maps that show how the towns and counties grew through the years? One excellent source of information is the Sanborn fire insurance maps.

The year 2002 celebrated the 250th anniversary of the foundation of "George Washington's Mother Lodge." According to the authors of The History of Freemasonry in Virginia, "Fredericksburg Lodge No. 4 stands out as one of the brightest Lodges in the early history of Freemasonry in Virginia." Since 1752 it has maintained a continuous Masonic presence in Fredericksburg. Many of the town's prominent citizens have been members, and many of its prominent buildings have Masonic cornerstones.

So, if you are in urgent need you can go online to one or more of the following jurisdictional web sites where you will find examples of divorce forms that might be adaptable to your situation:

Jeffrey and Some of his Pilgrim Group, Ready to Shove Off

You’d heard something about the Camino de Santiago, of course. Then you saw the wonderful feature film about it, the one that was released last year, The Way, starring Martin Sheen. After that you began to think, “Maybe I could do that…”, or perhaps even, “Maybe I should do that!”

VLRS

No. Although there are many good local lawyers, CRRL librarians cannot make referrals.

But help is available at the Virginia Lawyer Referral Service, 1-800-552-7977.

Your call to the VLRS will be answered by a referral specialist who will request your name, address, a daytime phone number, and a brief description of your problem. Based on this information, you will be provided with the name and telephone number of a lawyer in your area who has indicated a particular interest in handling your type of problem.

The Way We Were

Read a law book for fun?! Yes, believe it or not!

The CRRL Law Library has a 60-year-old law book in its collection that is actually fun to read. The Code of the City of Fredericksburg Virginia 1952 occasionally lets you glimpse what life was like here long ago, in a quieter, slower time.

Take a peek at some of its provisions:

"it shall be unlawful to have, keep, raise or maintain bees within the city limits." Sec. 4-5

In this brand-new, beautifully-packaged little book are gathered--and edited--the answers to these and many other questions on the topic of death and Heaven.

Legal Forms on Demand

“Do you have the divorce forms?” That question’s not as easy to answer as you might think -- but CRRL can probably help!

“How do I get an annulment in Virginia?” “Is there a form I can use to change my name?” “Can I file for bankruptcy without a lawyer?” “Is there a list of local domestic violence shelters?”

Grab-and-go forms and flyers dealing with all these legal matters, and many, many others, are now available at the CRRL Law Library.
