    I recently went to the Hanover Clerk's office and on the GIS system, it will show plots of land that are county owned. I've heard you can search those but I'm not 100% sure about that. Not sure if that helps or not.

    Instead of using the GIS, take a look at the deed books. Start by looking up the deed to your house when you bought it. It will reference the previous deed and the book/page it can be found in. Most of the time these will be cross referenced in the Plat books. Depending on the the record it will take you back at least until the late 1800s and you might be able to figure out the historical significance.

    There are tons of books and maps on Hanover to that cover colonial and Civil war periods. For early colonial period concentrate on farms along the rivers like the Pamunkey. Print or copy your research along with copies of old maps of the site you want permission for then approach the property owner with. Be upfront about what you want to do and let them know your interested in the history. Your success rate will be high as far as permission goes and the rest is up to you. Good luck... I've done quite well in Hanover.
