NCGS Webinars – The North Carolina Series

Helen F. M. Leary 


The North Carolina Series of webinars is produced by the North Carolina Genealogical Society for all interested in the history and genealogy of this state and its people. North Carolina’s renowned genealogist, Helen F. M. Leary, CG (Emeritus), FASG, begins the series with the question: "Tarheels in Your Family Tree?".
Genealogists will find that many families came through North Carolina - some stayed, others moved on, and a few returned. The information Ms. Leary and other speakers provide will be useful to all researchers of southern states and their peoples.
The text for this series is North Carolina Research Genealogy and Local History, Helen F. M. Leary, CG, FASG, Editor. It is available in the NCGS Store.
