About the Webinar:

“Tarheels in Your Family Tree?, Part 1and Part 2” served as the lead off webinars for the North Carolina Series. As NCGS celebrates its 50th Anniversary this year, these webinars provide a solid background on the history of the state and the available records. They make a perfect jumping off point to gain basic knowledge about the state of North Carolina that will prove beneficial when viewing other webinars in the North Carolina series.

About the Speaker:

Helen F. M. Leary is known to many for editing North Carolina Research and writing many of its chapters. Her knowledge of North Carolina records, laws, land, and repositories, plus her many years as an active, respected researcher, have made this book a source for Southern genealogy research techniques.
Helen came to national fame through her research resulting in the probable determination that Thomas Jefferson fathered children by his slave, Sally Hemings. The National Genealogical Society (NGS) has created videos in which Helen provides insight into her research techniques.
Additionally, throughout her career, Helen has served in many capacities in the BCG, NGS, Samford University Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research (IGHR) and has contributed largely to the success of the North Carolina Genealogical Society.
Helen has received many awards throughout her years of genealogical work. She is one of a small group honored with the title of CG Emeritus.
Helen has lectured extensively, always entertaining her audience with humor while driving her points home. Humor aside, Helen lectures for the serious genealogist by presenting methods of approach to solve the most difficult problem.

This webinar is always accessible on the website to NCGS members as a member benefit.
