Unknown No Longer – Virginia Historical Society
The majority of African-American Nocks can trace their roots back to Virginia. Most who wish to trace their roots eventually hit a brick wall once they get back to the Slave period. If one was a slave, you were considered property, therefore, you would not be counted in the Census. This has made family research very difficult for the descendants of American slaves. This new database will hopefully, help to change that. This is a big deal my friends.
