Blog Spotlight: African American Soldiers and Sailors

Congrats to Richard Phillips, one of our active North Carolina genealogy researchers!  One of his blogs was highlighted during the GeneaBloggers Radio Show #18 on Friday, May 27th.

GeneaBloggers Radio is held weekly on Friday evenings.  You can listen live and access previous shows here.  It is a great platform for learning new information while at the same time socializing with other genealogists.  This latest show focused on military records.  Guests included Curt Witcher of the Allen County Public Library and professional genealogist Jeffrey Vaillant.  Each week, Thomas McEntee, the show host, picks a blog to highlight.  This week, Richard’s African American Soldiers & Sailors blog was the one picked.

Not only is Richard an active researcher but he briefly helped us out as coordinator of the Scotland County pages. He has several web projects and this particular blog focuses on African American Soldiers and Sailors of Onslow County during the Civil War period.  This and another of his blogs is listed on the Onslow County Military page.

You can also find his blogs listed on our NC Genealogy 2.0 page along with many other NC genealogy & history related blogs.

How cool for Richard to be featured on GeneaBloggers Radio.  Here at NCGenWeb we value our volunteers such as he and our many others.  If you in fact, have information to share, please let us know.
