Let's Explore a Few of My Favorite On-line Resources: Internet Archive, JSTOR, & HathiTrust  (Meetings)
6:30 pm to 8:15 pm
Cameron Village Regional Library
1930 Clark Avenue
Raleigh, NC 27605
 
Speaker: Diane L. Richard
 
Join author, editor, professional researcher and sought-after speaker Diane L. Richard for a look at some of her favorite online resources!  With a plethora of online resources, it's often hard to know where to look for material.  There are invaluable resources for genealogists not called Ancestry.com or Fanily Search and that weren't even created by or for genealogists!  Many researchers overlook digitized books, journal articles and the like in their quest to learn about their ancestors. This is a mistake! Abstracted and transcribed records fill these volumes.  Historical content oozes from these materials.  Let'e explore some of Diane's favorite places for ferreting out hard-to-access materials that often prove to be a historical gem or nugget of research gold.
 
All WCGS meetings are free and open to the public.  Bring a friend!  Social time: 6:30; Announcements: 6:45pm. Presentation will start at 7:00.

In Search of Tri-Racial Heritage  (Meetings)
6:30 pm to 8:15 pm
Cameron Village Regional Library
1930 Clark Avenue
Raleigh, NC 27605
 
Speaker: George Thomas
 
All of us with roots to the earliest years of NC must consider the importance of racial mixing.  Our skin-based moralities have evolved as have the laws governing the diverse people.  With race as the central theme, George will tell of his ponderings about family and their neighbors who struggled to live among each other.  His story involves whites, free people of color, slaves, murder, and the eventual exodus from our state.  In this words, "a bizarre story line but one worth telling".  He'll also outline the resources used to docunment his story with all its twists and turns.
