This is an excellent source for information on the history of the Eastern Shore of Virginia. Just a reminder that this region of America is the original home of most Nock’s in this country. This history goes back to the earliest English settlements in the early 1600’s.
Virginia Shore genealogist, historian researches family roots
I’ve just returned from attending the Ghotes Genealogy Conference in Accomack, Virginia. I must say that it exceeded all of my expectations. The list of speakers were a who’s who of Eastern Shore history and genealogy. They all did a wonderful job, and their passion was contagious!
It was also nice to be able to spend a few days with the other attendees who have a love for genealogy, as I do. New friendships were created, and I look forward to continued communication with a number of folks, there. If you have a chance to attend a future conference, I highly recommend it!
