This webinar is always available to members in the Member Webinars area of the website. Each members’ webinar page also has a direct link to the handout.

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. Part 1 examines colonial and early statehood records.
