I am working on a project that is in the West End of Alexandria, Virginia which includes Seminary area, Wood Place, Wood Lane, parts of King Street, parts of Braddock Road, Quaker Lane, Donaldson Corner and etc. I am looking for descendants who worked for the Virginia Theological Seminary (VTS) who historically lived in that area up to the 1950s.
