My research has identified the following newspapers which serviced Colonial Beach, VA since 1878:

-Westmoreland Enterprises (1900's)
-Westmoreland Inquirer (1920's)
-Colonial Beach Progress (1902-)
-Colonial Beach Record (Late 1900's)
-Northern Neck News (1878-1939)
-Potomac Interest (1928)
-Southern Camp News (1908)

If any one has information on these newspapers or old copies/clippings, please bring them to the Museum.

I am trying to locate these newspapers archives but unfortunately I fear they have been lost to history.

That info was very helpful.

Roads of research seem to be leading to Richmond.

This is an essential part of researching the town so I dont believe I should put it off. I just dont like getting on the interstates.

Thanks again.

Well my family was in DC but they were not on "C" St. in 1940. I recognize none of the names on that block from the '40 census. I could have saved almost a year by just reading the instructions :) Hackers have to hack, glad I didn't die in the interim. In DC the LCD is police precincts.

Here's yours from a golden oldie (June last year)
