We met D-OGS members Barbara Spruill and Nerissa Williams at the conference as well. We have yet to find Dan Durham who is supposed to be there. I also met one of my classmates there as well. She used to be a member of D-OGS.
I met David Rencher from FamilySearch. He will be visiting Durham and Chapel Hill next week to research his Rencher family roots. If anyone knows anything about the Rencher family, please let me know and I will put you in contact with him. He is also looking for a cemetery that used to be located where the mobile home trailer park is located just outside of Hillsborough off of I-40. If anyone knows anything about this cemetery or where it may have been moved to (or if it was paved over) please let me know.
