Nadia Orton

Member of the Afro-American Historical & Genealogical Society, Chapter of Hampton Roads, Virginia, and the Association of Professional Genealogists.

I've been researching my family history since 2001, and have traced my ancestors to 1810 in the Franklin, Vance, and Warren Counties of North Carolina, and  to 1720 in the Hampton Roads (Tidewater) area of Virginia.

Currently, I'm transcribing the archives of Emanuel A. M. E. Church (1857), and Grove Baptist Church (1840), Portsmouth, Virginia, and helping to restore the historic African-American Mt. Calvary Cemetery Complex (1879), Portsmouth, Virginia.
