The staff at Historic Stagville keeps an on-going genealogy database at the site. This database includes family trees from the Cameron family slave records, as well as information offered by descendant families. Genealogists or family members interested in this information can contact the site to learn more!

If you think you might be a descendant of Stagville, call us to learn how we can help you research your family’s history at Stagville. We are always looking for new names, dates, photographs, or any other information that you are willing to share.

Descendants can also contribute to exhibits, displays, and programs at the site, if interested. Contact us for more information!

Genealogy contact: Vera Cecelski, Assistant Site Manager.
