Genealogy

researching historical figures and family roots

When you trace the steps of Captain John Smith and Pocahontas at the site of the original 1607 James Fort, you may also be tracing your own ancestor’s footsteps. We are unable to assist with genealogy research, but we offer a variety of genealogy reference books, listed below, through our online store.

The genealogy records database is currently undergoing maintenance. If you purchased records and are unable to download them, please email your order number or receipt to hjweb@preservationvirginia.org and we will email you the items you bought. We apologize for the inconvenience.
