      My ancestor's land in Saunton, VA was sequestered by the Confederacy during the civil war.  In Record Group 21, I found 21.49.6 Records of the Confederate States District Court for the Western District of Virginia-  Textual Records (in Philadelphia): which includes some case files in the Saunton, VA area. I have 2 questions: 1) Is there an index for these files? and 2) I live far from Philadelphia and I'm unable to make a research trip. Is it possible to contact NARA in Philadelphia and get a copy of these records?
