HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) — The James Madison University History Department and Rockingham county joined forces to digitize more than 6,000 records, allowing people to explore Rockingham County's past. It's the second project between the groups.

"It really tells a whole lot of stories about the time, about the government intrusion into people's lives, into businesses," Rockingham County Circuit Court Clerk Chaz Haywood told WHSV on Thursday. "We're excited about presenting those to the public tonight and launching to make them available for their own homes."

Haywood said the next project will cover Rockingham County during World War I.
