I had a suspicion the link may not work, it's happenned before when posting a link to their maps.

Got to VA Historical Society's site:

http://www.vahistorical.org/

Click on "search VHS Collections" in the upper right. Click on "Search Collections", again in the upper right. Type in "maps nottoway virginia" and check the box that reads "Restrict Search to Records with Digital Images or Electronic Links". Then click the word "Search" in the upper left. This takes you to the results page I sent the link for. There are two maps listed. Click on the blue print in the appropriate box in the "Image" column and another page will pop up. Click on the map image, then you will see a navigable map. Choose the proper zoom level and "Window Size" "640x480", then click on the map. This will enlarge the map.

I don't like the way this map viewer works, but this is a good source for old maps. I have found where several ancesters lived in the 1800's and early 1900's. After you play around with it, it gets a little easier.

Sorry for the lengthy instructions, but I wanted you to be able to go straight to it.

I'll search for Namozine Rd. later, and let you know what I find. Can Namozine Rd still be found on current maps?
