Thorowgood Resources


Submissions welcome!

One of the very best places to get information and to meet cousins is to join a discussion list. So far there is not a Thorowgood list, but we have the next best thing in that we have GHOTES!

Please visit the GHOTES site to learn how to join the list.
GHOTES: Genealogy & History of the Eastern Shore of Virginia
By far, the definitive site for online researching of the Eastern Shore and the area around Norfolk Co., Virginia, is covered in depth.

Another list that includes the Eastern Shore of Virginia within the scope of discussion is LOWER-DELMARVA-ROOTS: This list covers Accomack and Northampton counties of Virginia, and the southern counties of Maryland and Delaware. To subscribe, send a message with only the word subscribe in the message area to either mail mode or digest mode.
