Craven County: Explore Your Family Roots

Craven County is celebrating it up this weekend! This year marks the 300th Anniversary of the county and in honor of the birthday a series of events have been planned to celebrate the area history. Not only is the celebration for those from Craven County, but many of the neighboring counties as well – Beaufort, Carteret, Jones, Lenoir, & Onslow included.

The event is sponsored by the Family History Society of Eastern North Carolina. Events will be held on Friday, August 20th & Saturday, August 21st. More details can be found on the event website at

There is also an article in the New Bern Sun Journal worth reading for personal stories of some of those attending.   To all those going, have a great time and share pictures with those of us that can’t attend!
