The Landes Letter - February 2021 Edition

Friends,

   I hope this email finds everyone doing well and staying safe. My focus this month is to provide updates from the Clerk's Office including the Augusta County Court House Historic Records Fund, the loss of former Clerk John B. Davis, and Deputy Clerk Gina Coffey's 30th Anniversary as a member of the Augusta County Circuit Court Clerk's Office staff.

   I have also included the latest photos from the Augusta County Courthouse virtual photograph tour.

   The Augusta County Circuit Court Clerk’s Office and Community Foundation of the Central Blue Ridge have partnered to create the Augusta County Court House Historic Records Fund. The Clerk’s Office also announced a new digital online historic record archive portal for Augusta County records.
