Welcome to the Hampton Roads genealogy site. I hope that you will be able to find information on your family here, whether they lived here a few years or a lifetime. There are not many sites out there for genealogy research in this area, and my collection has been growing for years. This site is a work in progress, so if you don't find what you are looking for now, come back in a few weeks. I am constantly adding new records.
Where is Hampton Roads?
According to Wikipedia, Hampton Roads is the name for both a body of water and the Norfolk-Virginia Beach metropolitan area which surrounds it in southeastern Virginia. Hampton Roads is notable for its year-round ice-free harbor, for United States Navy, Coast Guard, Air Force, NASA, Marines, and Army facilities, shipyards, coal piers, and hundreds of miles of waterfront property and beaches, all of which contribute to the diversity and stability of the region's economy. Cities included in this area are Hampton, Newport News, Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Portsmouth, Suffolk, Poquoson, Yorktown and Williamsburg.
