    Not much out in the public in the way of maps around virginia beach. Might want to check the court houses. The ones I've seen for norfolk ptown chesapeake area are so changed and developed over. The maps get better once you get to suffolk surry area.

    Metal Detecting
    Quote Originally Posted by stringplucker View Post
    After getting into metal detecting a couple years ago I soon got into looking at old maps of Virginia. I have a cheap metal detector so the maps haven't done me much good. So basically I would like to help out here with my research and ability. If you have a location in Virginia that you have permission to hunt I would be happy to give you a set of pics for your area. One would be an 1860's map and the other would be a current google map of your location. Keep in mind that not all counties I have found. And also I've learned in some areas, the older map is off by a little and sometimes a lot yet in some places exact. It takes a little digital playing around with to get everything to match up sometimes. I then can overlay the maps so you can really get a good idea of what was there over 100 years ago.

    I've done this several times for friends with fairly decent results.The Civil War maps that I have access to are a little more detailed then the links I've seen here but are still in the general areas of already known CW sites. Keep in mind I won't be posting any maps or links here and I won't do an entire county. This is for specific areas only. Playing with these maps are fun for me and has almost turned into a hobby of its own. In any case, if you would like to check this out shoot me a pm. If everything goes well, all I ask in return is to see pics of your finds in the location/locations I've pinpointed. Thanks for reading and happy hunting!


    Edit: I have gotten several requests for entire counties. I'm not going to do that. I think it would invite people to run all over the place digging without permission. I don't want any part of that. If you have an area, say a field or plot of land or maybe a location you would like to know a little about before you ask permission, then I can try and help. Thanks
    hello there, do you have a set for smyth county?

    Neabsco creek in prince william county VA

    Good day sir,,

    Would you have any info/maps for the Neabsco creek old mine in Woodbridge VA ??
    I got a map from Big ten, and it shows an old mine location on the creek.
    Its 5 mins from my house on state property behind a K mart.
    Went there with metal detectors ( cheapo's ) and found what I assumed to be an old building or bridge foundation.
    being its so close and convenient I want to give it a thorough going over

    any info you have would be appreciated, anything I can do in return, just ask.
    good with mapping and Google earth searches

    I'm interested in Stafford County in the area near Ramoth Church Road.

    Thank you for helping. I'm brand new to the sport. I'm finding that for every hour I spend MD I spend 2 hours in research on the computer.
