The North Carolina Genealogical Society needs volunteers for NCGS webinars coming up in 2012 and 2013. Volunteers will be trained to help facilitate these online events. The only requirement is that you need to have a good internet connection and headphones with a microphone. Because these events are virtual, you do not need to be in the Raleigh area to help. We would like to have 4-8 people on a list who can help with monitoring the meetings, helping with rehearsals, recordings, managing communications. If you have a curiosity about this delivery methodology, please contact Mary Gray (Mary_L_Gray@yahoo.com).
The January 2012 issue of the NCGS News is the last issue that will be printed and mailed.
Beginning with the March 2012 issue, the NCGS News will be conveniently delivered to your e-mail inbox.
NCGS News will be published bi-monthly instead of quarterly beginning in 2012. That means you will receive six issues per year instead of four. NCGS News will now be able to offer more timely news about the North Carolina genealogical community to help you with your research.
The January 2012 issue of NCGS News was mailed to all members and will also be e-mailed to all members for whom NCGS has a valid e-mail address. Did you receive this issue of NCGS News in your e-mail inbox? If it did not arrive in your inbox, did you check your junk/spam folder? (Be sure to set permission to receive e-mails from NCGS.)
If you do not receive an electronic copy of the January 2012 issue of NCGS News by mid-January, then we do not have your current e-mail address in our database. Please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with “updated email address” as a subject line or use the online form at http://bit.ly/ncgs-email-form. We must have your e-mail address to ensure that you will receive future issues of NCGS News.
30 June 2012

Watch the NCGS News newsletter and the NCGS website for more information as it becomes available.
Your genealogy needs are important to NCGS. We have been busy creating new formats for our website, newsletter, and journal. The workshop offerings have become increasingly more versatile. We added the ability for members to submit articles and links of interest to North Carolina researchers to be published on the website. Now, we are asking for your input for future planning.
The NCGS survey of member preferences is here in an electronic format. Click on the “Survey” tab in the blue menu bar on the top of the home page, complete the survey, and click “submit” when done. You do not have to complete the survey again if you have mailed the survey form located in the fall NCGS newsletter. The online survey is identical to the one included with the newsletter.
We appreciate your membership in NCGS and this survey will help our committee chairpersons as they guide the Society into 2011 and beyond.
If you have any problems with this survey please e-mail our webmaster.
This is a reminder that the North Carolina Genealogical Society has a page for contact information about local genealogical and historical societies, libraries, and archives. This page is intended as a resource for members and non-members of the Society, and as a way to connect those interested in North Carolina genealogy with relevant groups and institutions.
Currently, 162 groups and institutions are listed in the directory. Updates to the directory are available via RSS (really-simple syndication) at http://bit.ly/ncgs-directory.
The NCGS has expanded its members-only offering of the NCGS Journal on its website.
Previously, members have been able to access PDFs of Journal issues released between the first issue (February 1975) and the November 2000 issue. The Journal is now available up to and including two years prior to the current membership year. This means that as of January 1st, 2010, the issues from 2001 through 2007 have been posted to the website. Every January, another year's worth of issues of the Journal will be posted.
The Journal issues on the web are full-text searchable on a per-issue basis.
To access the Journal, members need to log in, then click on either Publication > NCGS Journal in the top menu, or on NCGS Journal in the members-only side menu. If you are a current member, and are having problems logging into the site, please contact the Webmaster at email@example.com.
