Fall Workshop and Annual Meeting:
Using Migration Patterns and Research Methods to Track Your Ancestors
The North Carolina Genealogical Society (NCGS) will present Using Migration Patterns and Research Methods to Track Your Ancestors, on 3 October 2015 from 8:45 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the McKimmon Center, 1101 Gorman Street, Raleigh, NC 27606. We hope you will join us for the full-day workshop featuring four lectures by J. Mark Lowe, CG, FUGA.

Lunch is included with the registration.
Registration will begin at 8:45 a.m. The full-day workshop will include four lectures by J. Mark Lowe:
1. “Land Barons or Dirt Farmers: Finding Land Transactions.” Following the land will often identify the ancestor and family. Learn how to trace an individual through property records and how to trace a specific property.
2. “The Migration Triangle: Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Kentucky, and Tennessee.” Discover what prompted our ancestors to follow the Migration Triangle and continue westward. Learn the paths they followed and the process for finding those elusive travelers.
3. “Who Owned the Cow? & Other Common Conundrums: A Reasoning From Evidence Example.” See how a simple question and reasonable search using genealogical research skills and plans leads to real answers and opens new barn doors.
4. “How to Document the Right Family While Staying on Track.” Learn simple techniques for breaking down difficult research problems into manageable segments, including the basics of documentation and why it is an important family research tool.
Mark Lowe describes himself as a lifelong genealogist. He is a full-time professional genealogist, author, and lecturer who specializes in original records and manuscripts throughout the South. Mark lives in Robertson County, Tennessee, just north of Nashville near the Kentucky border.

Recently, a member brought to our attention that the member benefit for magazine discounts no longer worked. (Thank you!)
We discovered that this past spring, Family Chronicle Magazine had changed its name to Your Genealogy Today. In doing so, this apparently also changed their website links, which in turn broke our links to the discounts offered in the past for both both it and Internet Genealogy magazine.
We are pleased to announce the publisher has not only provided us with updated links, but has also offered NCGS Members a 20% discount to all products in their online store, including magazine subscriptions.
See the Magazine Discounts section in the left-hand column to take advantage of this benefit. (You must be logged in as a Member to access the page.)
The latest NCGS Journal (Vol. 41 No. 3) is now available in the Member's section of the website. Hardcopy should mail out within the next two weeks.
There is still time to nominate a worthy individual or society for the NCGS Annual Awards that honor outstanding efforts in publishing and other contributions to the North Carolina genealogical community. This year’s deadline for submitting nominations is 15 August 2015. The awards will be presented at the Society’s annual meeting, held in conjunction with the Fall Workshop, on 3 October 2015 at the McKimmon Center in Raleigh.
Further details about the categories of awards and Guidelines for the NCGS Awards are posted on the Awards page of the NCGS website. Questions may be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Saturday, 7 November 2015, The Friends of the Archives in conjunction with the State Archives of North Carolina, the Government and Heritage Library, and the North Carolina Genealogical Society are hosting “Ancestry Day," a full-day workshop featuring experts from Ancestry.com, at the McKimmon Center in Raleigh, NC.
