Visiting the State Library of Virginia

In few weeks time I'll be on East Coast  and I want to visit the State Library of VA in Richmond some research. My time in Virginia will be very short so I want to make the most of it. I am wondering if I can make some arrangements with an archivist prior to arriving?

Finding Elizabeth

A few weeks ago I made an inquiry with the Venago County Library to see if they had Elizabeth Goins' obituary. Someone wrote back that they didn't have her obituary but the Franklin City Library in Pennsylvania had it in the News-Herald. So I wrote and I finally received it 22 June, 2012.

I have feeling the Going/Goins/Goings family was rather larger and related. Goochland wasn't that far from Albemarle and Lousia. I believe one of the two received land from Goochland to form a county.

I've been looking thru the page and related links- for some reason unable to send  a message thru to you.  Unfortunately I find no connection.   My line is in Goochland, Cumberland area @ 1850.  Cannot verify parents of Moses at that point.  Trying to find evidence of some oral history, but no luck as of yet.   Fascinating stuff however on the Lumbees, Melungeons, etc.
