Discovering our Jamestown Ancestors
The group known as GHOTES (Genealogy & History of the Eastern Shore) of Virginia will help Jamestown era descendants trace their ancestors. GHOTES research and resources will be distributed and discussed at several local workshops throughout 2007, on a bus trip to Jamestown in May 2007 and at the GHOTES Conference in Sept 2007.
To support this effort a series of books is being published by Colonial Roots of Lewes, DE, entitled: Colonial Families of the Eastern Shore of Virginia and a portion of the GHOTES web site at www.ghotes.net will be devoted to finding Jamestown era ancestors.
