This D-OGS Meeting will be held on Wednesday evening, 5 May, 2010 at 7 p.m. at the Orange County Public Library on 137 West Margaret Lane in Hillsborough. Here is a map
The program will be presented by D-OGS member and author Stewart Dunaway. His program will be “Road, Bridge, Ferry, and Mill Records – Another Genealogist treasure”. These county records (located at the State Archives) contain amazing information about families and their locations. These records are now being cataloged and indexed by Stewart Dunaway, allowing easy access to these valuable county records. His talk will include a brief overview of how infrastructure laws evolved from British Rule to early American expansion. Using old Orange County records to illustrate this evolution, Stewart will also show examples of genealogy oriented information, not just trade route or other historical information. Included in these records are law suits which can include amazingly detailed information as well.
