Did you miss Craig Roberts Scott's live webinar? This is another opportunity to hear it!
NCGS is proud to provide a recording of Quaker Records and Migration, with Craig Roberts Scott, MA, CG, FUGA. This recorded webinar will be available for a free, 3-day public viewing, over the weekend of 4-6 December 2015 (12 am Fri to 12 pm Sun). This webinar will be accessible from the NCGS website.
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.
The pdf handout is only available to members, on the Members Webinars page.
You may register any time prior to the free viewing dates (4-6 Dec 2015), or on any day of the free viewing period. Upon registration, an email will be sent to the email address you provide on the registration form, containing a link to the webinar viewing page.

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.)
