The NCGS Journal seeks to advance North Carolina genealogical scholarship. Carefully researched and well-documented case studies and methodological articles are especially sought. The NCGS Journal also publishes transcriptions and abstracts of original documents of North Carolina genealogical significance. Neither NCGS, its publication committee, nor its editor can assume responsibility for errors on the part of contributors. Corrections of proved errors will appear in subsequent issues of the NCGS Journal. All articles in the NCGS Journal will be edited with reference to standards set forth in the current editions of The BCG Genealogical Standards Manual, The Chicago Manual of Style, and Evidence Explained: Citing History Sources from Artifacts to Cyberspace, by Elizabeth Shown Mills. The editor reserves the right to adapt standards to the needs of this publication.
