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.

Both the latest NCGS News and the NCGS Journal (Feb 2015) are now available online, in the Publications section. The NCGS Journal is only available to members, after logging in.

“Pre-1913 Vital Records - Challenging & Elusive & Not Necessarily Impossible to Find”
On 16 January 2015, the North Carolina Genealogical Society will present a new, live webinar, featuring Diane L. Richard.
Full details and registration coming soon!

Journal Index Update Feb 2015

The online NCGS Journal index has been updated. Almost 23,000 more Names and over 4500 Places have been added. The structure of the page has changed again - each document is all-inclusive of the names beginning with that letter (i.e., all the "A"s in one file, etc.). These are still individual pdf files that will open in a new browser window, and still searchable. These are obviously much longer lists, but researchers should have no trouble opening them in a browser.

To navigate to these indexes, look under Publications>NCGS Journal, and click on NCGS Journal Index.
