Accomac* County, Virginia
AccomacRoots, affiliated with the non-profit Chincoteague Cultural Alliance (CCA)**, exists to serve as a resource for researching the genealogy of African American families on Chincoteague Island, Accomac County, Virginia (CI). From 1810 to 1850, free blacks and slaves comprised 40 to 50% of the population of the county. And yet, comparatively very little has been written or compiled about those families.
