About the Webinar:

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? This webinar will present some rules of thumb and strategies for research into those born NC individuals to determine where in NC they came from. Also shared will be a select list of records that are key to this type of NC research with a discussion on what makes them so invaluable.
