I’ve read through many deed, will and order books to piece together early Virginia families. I’ve studied neighbors listed on deeds and looked at groups of men that repeatedly witnessed or signed records together. I’ve also discovered the names of slaves in deeds, wills, tax records and chancery cases. This site is a huge work in progress where I am gradually uploading and sharing my research. I live in the state of Virginia, so I visit places my ancestors lived and walk the places they walked.
I also work on a website about Mecklenburg County family history, the place where Martha Newman raised her 15 children. This other website I’ve created has pictures, stories, a cemetery project, and a map project. (With old plats drawn in, & old houses and cemeteries marked.) https://mecklenburgvagenealogy.com/
