Craig Roberts Scott, MA, CG, FUGA - Quaker Records and Migration
The North Carolina Genealogical Society is delighted to present:
Craig Roberts Scott, MA, CG, FUGA
“Quaker Records and Migration” - A LIVE Webinar 20 November 2015, 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST
(An encore recording will be presented during a Free Viewing Period: 4-6 Dec 2015.)
This webinar will examine the creation of Quaker records and their meaning for the researcher. The reasons for migration and migration patterns before and after the Revolutionary War will also be explored. North Carolina, prior to the Revolution, was a destination. As slavery became more of an issue for Quakers, North Carolina was the major source of out migration.

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.
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.
