For ten years Virginia Roots has strived to identify abandoned and recently restored cemeteries. For those that are in need of restoration it is hoped that by working with local organizations that we will be able to coordinate volunteer opportunities and increase our small endowment fund.
Currently we have seven cemetery restoration projects in Richmond, Va. This project is comprised of 4 Cemeteries at Evergreen and Woodland Cemetery, in addtion to Tucker's Cemetery and Zion Cemetery in Hampton, Virginia, last is a new Cemetery in Suffolk, Va.
We are in need of Volunteers and funding for these historic burial grounds one of which dates back 400 years.
