Welcome to History Hub
I started searching but have a question. There are both so should I be searching for African American or white George Riddick?
Hi Alice, My grandfather was white. He died 11/22/1962 in Brooklyn NY. Thank you for your help.
There is a possibility that he was adopted. Some connection might be to Haines.
Dear Ms. Riddick-Bernard,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We suggest that you contact the Library of Virginia to obtain a copy of your grandfather’s birth record. The Archives Division of the Library of Virginia has copies of surviving Virginia birth and death records for the period 1853 to 1896 and marriage records prior to 1936. These records are public information and are available on microfilm for use by the public. Abstracts are available online.
You also may wish to review the FamilySearch Research wiki for Virginia Vital Records. In addition, the History Hub blog Suggestions and Advice for Family History Researchers may be of use.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
Didn't find a birth certificate but here are some other items in case you do not have
