NCGS Shopping Cart

The NCGS Store shopping cart appears to be working correctly, although we are still doing some clean-up in the store. Some items may not be visible yet, but should be back online by tomorrow afternoon.

If you experience any problems, please inform the webmaster.

Thank you for your continued patience.

Web Site Status 13 Jan 2014

Over the weekend, the web site was refreshed with the latest software updates. During this process, some things have become scrambled, some menu items are not working properly.

We are working on correcting these issues, and ask for your patience.

- Thank you

Shopping Cart Difficulties

Loose Estate Records Index - Update Dec 2013

The Loose Estates Records Index has been updated with 5 more counties - Gates, Graham, Granville, Jones, and Lincoln. This adds 9673 new names to the Decedent Surnames Index, for a new total of 79,945 names. All surname groups increased.

During the update, it became apparent that the redirect for the "B" group of surnames was off by 1 digit, so all the links were offset by one, and the first group, "Babb-Balcon", was not accessible. That has been corrected. If anyone experiences a problem with any of the links, it would be helpful to send a note to webmaster@ncgenealogy.org.

Societies / Libraries / Archives menu tab

As some may have noticed, the contents of the Societies/Libraries/Archives sub-menu item, under the Resources menu tab, did not make the transition to the upgraded web site.

This has now been rebuilt, and is functioning. Although the entries have not been verified recently, they are the same entries that were on the old site.

Any questions, problems with using this feature, or corrections may be addressed to the Webmaster.
