Miles Files 11.5

I live on what is called the Eastern Shore of Virginia. We are fortunate enough to have a Genealogist / author Moody K. Miles, III, who has posted on the website linked through the local library his data base that he calls the Miles Files.

This has been an enormous help to me as I have been researching my wife's father's family who has been here since the 1600's.

The Miles Files website is best described by his into:

"The MilesFiles, Version 11.5, December 2011, contain about 63,000 names from the Eastern Shore counties of Accomack and Northampton, Virginia and Worcester and Somerset, Maryland. It includes the first 6 generations of descent of the First Families of Virginia from the Jamestown era (listed in the Muster of 1624/5) that settled in these four Eastern Shore counties. "

I also have several of his books.

Have a great weekend!
