Free Webinar: Finding a North Carolina Revolutionary War Ancestor

Join us July 3, 2020 @ 12:00 am – July 5, 2020 @ 11:59 pm for a free recorded webinar featuring Craig R. Scott.

About the Webinar

North Carolinians were active participants in the Revolutionary War, providing men, supplies, and support for the revolutionary cause. Records were created before, during, and after the war. There is more to research than compiled military service records and pension application files, such as public claims, pension ledgers, and pension payment vouchers. Records are found in the National Archives, Ancestry.com, Fold3.com, the North Carolina State Library and Archives, and in some unexpected places. Clues to information on ancestors and descendants can be found in the lineage application papers of the Daughters of the American Revolution and the Sons of the American Revolution.
