Web Site Status 20 Jan 2014

The vast majority of glitches created with the recent software upgrade have been corrected. We are pleased that the NCGS Store seems to be operating correctly, as well as the internal links within the website. The Societies/Libraries/Archives menu item is back in action. The historical data for membership purchases has not yet been migrated, so if you receive a 30-notice about renewing your membership, and you know you have already done this in the past month, please contact the NCGS Administrator or the Webmaster.

The Membership menu item is still acting a little strangely. Links on the page have been corrected.

If you need to renew your membership, log in and select the Account Profile drop-down from the Membership menu item. When that page opens, click on the Subscription tab at the lower left of the page. Within that section, you can renew or upgrade your membership.

There may still be some issues we haven't yet discovered, so please contact the Webmaster about any problems you encounter. The main unresolved issue we are aware of is that the emailer component is not yet working correctly, and the internal NCGS contact email links are non-functional at this time. Corrected - email links within web pages now operational.

To contact the Webmaster, send your email to webmaster@ncgenealogy.org.
To contact the NCGS Administrator, send your email to info@ncgenealogy.org.

(The two email links above work.)

We thank you for your continued patience while we strive to create a better website for the North Carolina Genealogical Society.

Web Site Status 15 Jan 2014

In addtion to some structural changes that have already been addressed, the recent software upgrade resulted in re-numbering most of the articles on the web site. Hyperlinks within the site depend on these article IDs, which in effect, broke the links. Most of these have been updated, including all of the links in the North Carolina Loose Estates Records Index.

We have made much progress over the last few days in tracking down and fixing glitches, but are still working through it.

We thank you for your continued patience while we strive to create a better website for the North Carolina Genealogical Society.

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

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.

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.
