These maps of Accomack County and the indices that accompany them were created by ghote Jim Lokenbauer. Jim used data from Whitelaw's Eastern Shore of Virginia, deeds, wills, and other sources to create these new tools. Jim has generously agreed to share them with ghotes and visitors to the ghotes website. As you will see as soon as you start to explore here, Jim has created an extremely valuable research tool for everyone interested in the history of the Eastern Shore and Eastern Shore families. Proximity has repeatedly been recognized as the key predictor of relationships, and here you have an informative and fascinating tool that will let you see how near or far individuals may have actually resided from one another.
Our sincere thanks go to Jim. We greatly appreciate all the hours that went into this labor. We also appreciate Jim's generous nature—from which we all benefit now!
Thanks also to our webmaster Jack Burn for getting these files onto the site in a way that is so useful. There are now "hot spots" on the maps so that you can see "who lived where" just by clicking on a given map section.
