I’d love to hear from any Washington County researchers that are on Facebook! FamilySearch has a new NC Genealogy Research page and if you’re on FB, please consider “liking” the page. You can find it at http://goo.gl/OAIYU.
You can stay connected to the page and help answer any questions that arise from other researchers, share pictures of interest, or just share links to resources you find helpful. The Facebook page is not limited to just Washington County, but covers the whole state, so who knows what you’ll discover. An icon-linked picture to the Facebook page, as well as a link to my personal Twitter profile is now included on the right sidebar of the site if you want to connect via Twitter.
Enjoy and participate!
On Saturday, September 18th 2010 Plymouth’s only known remaining Primitive Baptist Meeting House, the Concord Primitive Baptist Church, will have their homecoming celebration!
Featured speaker for the day is Rev. Dr. Bobby R. Taylor. More details in the flyer below.
For those that may prefer to get an email to learn of new content instead of visiting the site or subscribing to the site RSS feed, I have finally set that up. Signing up for an email alert is a two-step process:
1. Click here to enter your email address
2. Once you enter your email address, you will be sent an email that will ask you to verify your account. Click on the link in this email and you will then be all set.
This will not clutter up your email; my posts tend to be low-volume. But, the advantage to this is that now you don’t have to *remember* to come see what’s new!
Just a reminder
After such a cold two weeks, Wednesday is predicted to be a beautiful day to get out and go somewhere.
WCGS will meet briefly at 2:00 PM at the Masonic Lodge Hwy 32, on Wednesday January 20. Then we’ll go to the Washington County Courthouse in Plymouth where Keith Phelps, Deputy CSC, will guide us on a tour of the Courthouse offices which house the genealogical information we’re all searching for.
This is an excellent opportunity to familiarize yourself with the courthouse and its wealth of records which are now hiding your family’s genealogical secrets. Who better to show us around than one who is in there on a daily basis and is so willing to share with us?
We’ll close the meeting at the lodge where we can talk it out over some Coke and cookies (or something!)
I think this is one meeting you will not want to skip. Keith is anxiously waiting for us at the courthouse.
Please join us Wednesday.
See you then,
Virginia Haire, WCGS President
