Missing Mothers Preview

James Peale family

Enjoy this preview to Missing Mothers and How to Find Them: Antebellum NC Property Laws and Their Effect on our Research, with Helen F. M. Leary, CG (Emeritus), FASG, FNGS

We recognize, in the abstract, that half our ancestors were female. If we understand property laws, we can direct our research to the records and analyses that help us unmask them.

The full webinar, along with handout, is always available in the Member Webinars section of the website. Several times a year, NCGS makes recorded webinars available to the public over a 3 day, free-play weekend. Watch for them on the NCGS home page under “Upcoming Events”. Available in the NCGS online store is North Carolina Research – Genealogy and Local History, the text for the NCGS Webinar Series.
