How has the Virginia miscegenation law effected your genealogy research results?
  • whairston June 2013
    Has anyone encountered problems finding their ancestors during the post Civil War period because of the Virginia miscegenation law? This law forbidding marriage between blacks and whites was not struck down until 1967? Did Virginia allow parents of different ethnic origins to be put on birth and death certificates?

    When I was researching I found that often the couple moved to another state. However, the census records often stated mulatto.

Howdy, Stranger!
