Tarheels Part 2 Encore

NCGS Encore2-medNCGS is proud to present an encore presentation of: 
Helen Leary's Tarheels in Your Family Tree? Part 2!

Tarheels in Your Family Tree? Parts I and II with Helen F. M. Leary were the lead-off webinars for the North Carolina Series. These webinars relate the genealogy of North Carolina to how the state was formed, how the role of the three regions differed, the ownership and political line changes of the early years, and the economic issues that brought populations to various areas of North Carolina. (Although this is Part 2 of 2, it is a stand-alone webinar - watching Part 1 is not a prerequisite.)
A sneak preview of this webinar is now available through the main Webinars page (see upper menu bar).
You may pre-register on the Webinars page, or here RegisterToday
You may register any time prior to the free viewing dates (7-9 August 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. This link will not be active until the free viewing period starts. You may wish to add the dates to your personal calendar as a reminder.

Sep 2015 NCGS News

The latest edition of the NCGS News, Sep 2015, is now available online. Click on "NCGS News" under "Publications" on the top menu bar. Scroll to the bottom of the page for this year's issues.

Journal Indexing Project

A new project is under way at NCGS! Volunteers are in the process of transcribing all the printed indexes from the NCGS Journal. From 1975 to 1993, these were added to the last Issue of the year, as an annual index. From 1994 onward, indexes were included at the end of each Issue. This is a massive undertaking, and we are just getting started. You can see our results, so far, under "Publications" at the top menu. Look at the drop-down menu item "NCGS Journal", then "NCGS Journal Index". This is made freely available to the public as a research tool. Past issues of the NCGS Journal are available on CD in our online store, and are always available to members online.
