NC Genealogy 2.0

There are a number of blogs, RSS feeds, Facebook & Twitter feeds available for those with genealogical & historical ties to North Carolina.  By subscribing to them, you can stay up-to-date with less time.   This 3-minute video, RSS in Plain English, that explains how they work.

To subscribe to each of these feeds, click on the link to grab the RSS URL and then enter it into your feed reader of choice.  For Facebook & Twitter pages, you don’t need to add them to a feed reader, but instead either “Like” or “Follow” the page.  Need a feed reader?  A popular one is Feedly and a more extensive comparison chart is available at Wikipedia.  As the NCGenWeb project becomes aware of them, we’ll continue to add to this page.  We also will include links to Facebook pages on this page too.  If you need assistance with learning how to subscribe to any of these blogs let us know!
