Local History Digital Collection & Index
Search our newly updated and expanded Local History Digital Collection & Index to find (and view) Falls Church related photographs, death notices, and records for thousands of items in the our Local History

Currently, the Local History Digital Collection & Index consists of five databases (or collection areas), which can be searched jointly or individually:  
  • Pictures: Search and view nearly 1,400 local photos, maps, and drawings. (We're adding more as fast as we can!)
  • Obituaries: Search and view over 15,000 local death notices and obituaries. 
  • Newsletters: Search an index of newsletters from Falls Church organizations and City government.
  • Newspapers: Search an index of Falls Church related articles from Northern Virgina newspapers. 
  • General Index: Search a general index of materials located in the MRSPL Local History Room, including vertical files and archival collections. 

New content is added on a regular basis; and in the future, additional databases - for oral histories and other digitalized content - will be added.
