About the NCGS Journal

The North Carolina Genealogical Society (NCGS) was chartered as a non-profit organization in 1974 and began publishing the North Carolina Genealogical Society Journal in 1975. Since that time the Journal (ISSN: 0360-1056) has been published quarterly in February, May, August, and November.

Members (login required) can browse the complete run of the North Carolina Genealogical Society Journal online. .

Editorial Policy: The NCGS Journal seeks to advance North Carolina genealogical scholarship. Carefully researched and well-documented case studies and methodological articles are especially sought. The Journal also publishes transcriptions and abstracts of original documents of North Carolina genealogical significance. Neither the NCGS, its publication committee, nor its editor can assume responsibility for errors on the part of contributors. Corrections of proved errors will appear in subsequent issues of the Journal. All articles in the Journal will be edited with reference to standards set fort in the current editions of The BCG Genealogical Standards Manual, The Chicago Manual of Style, and Evidence Explained: Citing History Sources from Artifacts to Cyberspace, by Elizabeth Shown Mills. The editor reserves the right to adapt standards to the needs of this publication.

Manuscripts: Submission of feature articles, source materials, fillers, or any other material for inclusion in the Journal is most welcome. Correspondence concerning editorial matters should be addressed to NCGS Journal Editor, PO Box 30815, Raleigh, NC 27622-0815; e-mail journaleditor@ncgenealogy.org. Electronic submissions in Microsoft Word, sent via e-mail or on a disk, are preferred.

Book and Media Reviews: Publications submitted for review in this column become the property of the North Carolina Genealogical Society, which donates them to the Genealogical Services Branch of the North Carolina State Library for the use of all patrons. Preferred subject matter includes transcripts or abstracts from unpublished public or private records or some aspect of research methodology having a major bearing on North Carolina or North Carolinians of the past. Family histories and other publications considered as being complementary to North Carolina research may be reviewed. When forwarding copies, please include selling price and any other add-on costs to the consumer (postage, handling, sales tax, etc.) as well as the address to which interested parties may direct their inquiries or orders. Also, if possible, include an e-mail address where you can be reached.
     Books are reviewed in the order of their receipt. Due to the large number of new publications, several issues may be published before a review appears. Please submit review copies to: Pamela S. Pearson, 21 Watchung Trail, Somerville, NJ 08876. E-mail contact is: pampearson23@gmail.com.
