The Landes Letter - May 2022 Edition


   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 our second clean audit and the restored voting registers the Clerk's Office received.

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

Augusta County Circuit Court Clerk Receives Second Clean Audit

   The Clerk’s Office has received notification from the Auditor of Public Accounts (APA) that the office achieved a clean audit report from the recently completed state audit of the office’s accounting and finance records. This is the second clean audit report the Clerk’s Office has received during my tenure as Clerk of Circuit Court.

Augusta County Clerk Receives African-American Voting Registers

   The Clerk's office recently received 14 restored early Augusta County 20th century African-American Voting Registers, which are now in one volume. The records were restored due to a grant received from the Augusta County Genealogical Society (ACGS).

   The Augusta County Circuit Court Clerk’s Office is grateful to have these important restored voting records back and available for researchers to see. These early African-American voter records are important documents and will allow future generations to see these original pieces of history. We again want to thank the Augusta County Genealogical Society for the donation that made this project possible.

Virtual Photograph Tour

   Earlier in May, we announced that we have received the 14 Augusta County African-American Voter Registers from 1904 - 1940. These records were restored due to a donation from the Augusta County Genealogical Society. This is the cover page, and a letter of transfer for a voter from October 4, 1927.
