About the Webinar:

Deeds are extremely useful in genealogical research for determining time and place, relationships, neighbors, wealth, occupations, and more. They are also the most voluminous records you’ll encounter dating from before the founding of North Carolina up to right now, and deeds for a specific property can be scattered amongst multiple counties. This webinar will show how to find these deeds, how to understand them, and how they can apply to your research.
