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.
