The latest NCGS News, July 2015, is now available online under the Publications -- NCGS News menu tabs (scroll to the bottom of the page for the latest issues).
We also have a new resource available. "Tools of the Trade" is a series of articles previously published in the NCGS News, written by Terry Moore, CG.
These articles are now consolidated in one place, under the Resouces tab on the top menu, and are freely available to all. The latest article, featured in the current NCGS News, has just been added. New articles will be added as they are written.
Five new counties have been added - Hyde, Scotland, Stanly, Swain, and Surry - with 8144 new names added to the Surname Decedent Index, for a current total of 118,953 names.
The Decedent Index page has also been redesigned. All surnames beginning with the same letter will be found in the same searchable pdf file.
Update - 13 Nov 2014: over 10,000 more Names and over 2,000 Places have been added. The structure of how these indexes are accessed has been changed, using a table format rather than a page with a list of downloadable documents. Each entry in the table will open a pdf file in a new browser window. It is hoped this will make it less cumbersome for researchers. (The previous method is still available on the main Publications page.)
Access the online index from the main menu, under Publications > NCGS Journal > NCGS Journal Index. Currently, the total is 40,342 Name entries and 5,154 Place entries.
The online NCGS Journal index has been updated. Almost 23,000 more Names and over 4500 Places have been added. The structure of the page has changed again - each document is all-inclusive of the names beginning with that letter (i.e., all the "A"s in one file, etc.). These are still individual pdf files that will open in a new browser window, and still searchable. These are obviously much longer lists, but researchers should have no trouble opening them in a browser.
To navigate to these indexes, look under Publications>NCGS Journal, and click on NCGS Journal Index.
The latest issue of the NCGS Journal (Vol. 40, No. 4) is now available. Remember, you must be logged in as a member to access it. The print edition should be mailed out early in November.
Both the latest NCGS News and the NCGS Journal (Feb 2015) are now available online, in the Publications section. The NCGS Journal is only available to members, after logging in.
