Finding and Understanding North Carolina Land Grants” is the focal point of our October meeting on Tuesday, October 10, 3-5 pm at The Gathering Place. David M. McCorkle, guest speaker, is a native of North Carolina and the president and founder of NC Historical Records Online and the creator of a free website of NC Land Grant Images and Data which contains searchable records for all land grants issued by North Carolina. His presentation will examine the importance of land grants in genealogy research, the kind of land grants you may discover, and ways to evaluate and understand these records as you pursue your family history.
The Fearrington Genealogy Group provides its members with a chance to share their family history stories, learn about a wide variety of genealogy topics, and give each other help to overcome the inevitable “brick walls” we all face in researching our family trees. We cordially invite newcomers to join us at our monthly meetings, 3-5 p.m., on the second Tuesday in September-May in the Gathering Place and on occasional research trips. Dues are $15 per person. The Coordinator is Linda Grimm (firstname.lastname@example.org or 919-533-6296).
