Your Contact Information
The Agency You're Requesting Records From
Provide detailed descriptions of the records you seek, giving dates and names if/where appropriate. If you're not sure which records to ask for or what they are called, you can get ideas from the Library of Virginia's records-retention schedule, which lists the general categories of records state and local governments usually keep.
