Genealogy

researching historical figures and family roots

When you walk in the footsteps of Captain John Smith and Pocahontas at the site of the original 1607 James Fort, you may also be tracing your own ancestor’s history. We offer a variety of genealogy reference books, listed below, through our online store to help explore the lives of many of Jamestown’s 17th-century residents. Regretfully we are unable to assist with genealogy research questions.

Coming Summer 2021! Over the past year, we have been working on updates to some of our genealogy records. The database infrastructure is also getting a makeover. The genealogy records, which will be sold as downloadable PDFs, summarize the documented information about one of Jamestown’s seventeenth-century residents. Please check back later this spring when the updated records will be available for purchase.
