9781332310500: The Lower Norfolk County Virginia Antiquary (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Lower Norfolk County Virginia Antiquary

Two volumes of the Lower Norfolk County Virginia Antiquary have been given to the public and favorably received, and the Editor is emboldened to hope for as favorable a reception for the third volume, of which this is the first part. Notwithstanding the Editor announced in the introduction to No.1, Part 1, that he would answer no questions, he is in the constant receipt of letters and visits, is stopped in the streets, and has been followed into places of business where he has gone to make purchases. The Editor is engaged in this work for his own pleasure and in the future he will not answer any letters or questions about genealogical or historical matters. This may appear selfish, but he, as all others who are engaged in this kind of work, has seen enough to be convinced of the impossibility of pleasing everybody. People generally have high notions about their ancestors, and are almost always disappointed and offended when told that there is no evidence and no good reason for believing that they are descended from the important European families whose names they happen to bear, and that remote traditions are almost always misleading and unreliable.
