Enjoy this preview to “Born NC” and Living Elsewhere: Making the Connection Back with Diane L. Richard, ME, MBA.

What if you only know born NC from a census, military record, or a child’s death record? Is it possible to figure out where in NC? With the 1850 census as the first census that provided the names of all individuals in a household as well as age and birthplace, this is often the first clue to where one’s ancestors were born!

The full webinar, along with handout, is always available in the Member Webinars section of the website. Several times a year, NCGS makes recorded webinars available to the public over a 3 day, free-play weekend. Watch for them on the NCGS home page under “Upcoming Events”. Available in the NCGS online store is North Carolina Research – Genealogy and Local History, the text for the NCGS Webinar Series.
