RN #202 Virginia Indians and Jamestown

A study into the relationship between Jamestown and the early ethic groups (Indians) that occupied the land, is an important undertaking.  This effort provides a context to one of the many factors that affected the earliest years of struggle of my ancestors.  This notebook contains a copy of "Chapter 77: A Seventeenth Century Chronology Drawn from Colonial Records with Contemporary Native Perspectives", by Danielle Moretti-Langholtz and Angela L. Daniel. [http://www.nps.gov/history ]  The native and local writers provide a source of information [names] in my own JONES family tree climbing.

The above is taken from the cover of of the book named:

"The Generall Historie of Virginia, New-England, and the Summer Ifles: with the names of the Adventures, Planters, and Governors from their firft beginning, An: 1584. to this prefent 1624. "
 Written by none other than Captain John Smith.
