Query Boards and Mailing Lists for Watauga County Researchers
One of the best ways to help connect to other researchers, is to post messages on free public forums. We suggest that you subscribe to the Watauga County Mailing List on Rootsweb.com, or to the Message Boards on Rootsweb or other forums of your choice. If you are on Facebook come join the NCGenWeb Project Facebook Page there and post your questions. Remember before posting messages, do the research first, locate your ancestors in Census records to get an idea of where to look, then seek out others researching the same families or researching the same locations.

Tips on Posting Messages
Remember that when posting a message to either a Mailing List or Message
Board, you should be clear and concise as to what you are looking for.
In the Subject line, you should include the Name, Location, and a Time
Frame at the very least, then in the Body of the message, a more
detailed description of the individual and/or family saying what other
records you have looked through and where, will better enable others to
help you in your research. Never ask for "all the records that you
have..." or similar wording when requesting research help, one should
always be specific and courteous in any message posted on a public
forum, and you will get much better results because researchers are more
likely to read through a well-worded message than one that gives little
or no details.
