About the Webinar:

Infrastructure records consist of roads, bridges, ferry, ordinary and mill records which define the necessary infrastructure to migrate across North Carolina and surrounding states. These records include petitions, reports, and contracts. Within the petition or reports, descriptions of landowners and neighbors can be provided. Reasons for their need or discontinuance are well described thereby providing insight to the area development and migration paths, perhaps answering why a relative moved from one location to another.
This presentation will cover the record types and what genealogy information can be found within them. Throughout the presentation actual documents and examples are included.

About the Speaker:

After retiring as Vice President at Siemens Telecom in Florida, Stewart Dunaway, wife Maryellen, and daughter Sarah moved to Hillsborough in 2001.
Beginning in 2005, Stewart photographed and transcribed the entire State’s collection of road, bridge, mill, ordinary and ferry records from the State Archives in Raleigh. In addition, he transcribed and photographed all the confiscation records during the Revolutionary war, as well as thousands of land records detailing the McCulloch Grants.
During his 15-year research effort, he applied for three new State Historical Road Markers, one corrected and replaced, and one removed due to invalid information. In 2019 he retired from his research and moved back to his home state of Florida.
He is now working on State Land Grants in Florida. His published transcript and other research just passed 287 different titles spanning over 97,000 pages.
