Pasquotank, Camden, and Currituck Photo Gallery

This is my photo collection from our driving tour of Pasquotank, Camden, and Currituck counties on August 19, 2016. Some of the sites we visited were for research purposes while others were for familial significance. Our tour was led by A. Burgess Jennings, author of Camden County (Images of America) and Currituck County (Images of America). Brief descriptions are provided below.

This site contains a historical and genealogical overview of the Great Dismal Swamp. The primary focus is on free people of color who lived in the counties of Norfolk, Princess Anne, Pasquotank, Camden, and Currituck (with relationships extending throughout southeastern Virginia and northeastern North Carolina) and environmental influences on historical communities and migration. I am a Washington, DC-based scientist, an advocate for responsible research, and a Descendant of the Great Dismal. Thank you for reading.
