About the Webinar:

Our North Carolina ancestors left a treasure trove of records in the courts of their time. Finding the right court and the right records can be a challenge, yet understanding the records of the courts closest to the average citizen is a skill that’s crucial to finding clues to family history in the Tarheel State. In Part 1, we’ll examine colonial and early statehood records, and Part 2 (presented live September 2018) will cover post-1868 state records and the records of North Carolina’s federal courts.
