About us

The purpose of this project is to trace the lineage of the African American Hord familhy. Our research has reached a wall and we have been unable to determine our lineage before Reuben Hord (mulatto b.1820 Va). Our Hord family has the same names as the Hords of Virginia; the John Hord family from Shady Grove, VA. Because of historical circumstances and the institution of slavery, African Americans often cannot determine their heritage without the assistance of DNA testing of possible relatives.
