We are pleased to announce that not one but TWO of our board members will be presenting at the National Genealogical Society 2021 Conference (online) in May 2021! One talk will feature our main project, nclandgrants.com . Here is a brief description of the talks:
David M. McCorkle will present:
Easily Find Your North Carolina Ancestor’s Land History and Neighbors Using nclandgrants.com
Use nclandgrants.com to quickly search all 216,000 North Carolina land grants, complete with data and images of original documents, with many available nowhere else online.
Exhausted All the Deeds? Use Other Land Records to Uncover Even More Valuable Information
Deeds are valuable for genealogy, but other land records such as processioning, ejectments, homestead exemptions, and foreclosures can contain that information you’ve been searching for.
Diane L. Richard will present:
Journey Through Ledgers Where Genealogical Gems Abound
A visual journey through ledgers. Store, hotel, livery, stable, distillery, blacksmith, physician, etc., ledgers provide a unique perspective regarding your family history.
In Her Own Words—Lives of Women Through Diaries, Journals, Correspondence and More
Women are traditionally challenging to document in historical public records. Personal diaries, journals, correspondence, and more can help fill in gaps about female ancestors.
