Unfortunately, NCGS will be unable to offer the scheduled free public viewing of the recording of Craig Scott’s “Finding Women: Maiden Name Not Known.” During editing, we discovered that GoToWebinar did not fully capture the recording. We apologize to those who have already registered for the upcoming free replay weekend of the recorded webinar. The webinar “Finding Women: Maiden Name Not Known” will again be presented live on 8 July 2016 at 3:00 p.m. EDT. Presentation of the recording of that live presentation will occur on the weekend of 5-7 August 2016. You may register for this webinar on the NCGS website. (See next article for "live" session registration. Registration for the 3-day viewing of the recording will be available after the live presentation.)
Back by popular demand, the previously recorded webinar “The Goodliest Soyle": Finding, Reading, and Interpreting North Carolina Land Records by Helen F. M. Leary will be presented during the upcoming scheduled webinar replay weekend of 3-5 June 2016. No pre-registration is required for this pre-recorded webinar.
The page for this webinar will only be accessible during the scheduled dates. The link below will not work until June 3rd. You may click on the link below to access the webinar at any time during the 3 day period.
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.
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.
NCGS 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
