Copycats Are Welcome Here!

Years of researching are reflected in The Pocomoke Public Eye's weekly "Time Machine" collections of old newspaper items of local interest. It's our history! And for the most part it's not what you'll find in a history book. You are welcome and encouraged to copy and save material we post to make your own personal collection, and to share with others as well. If you need help with how to go about it ask a friend (or a youngster!) to clue you in. We like copycats!

Note: Copied material is for your personal use or sharing and not to be sold or distributed for a reimbursement.
