North Carolina Genealogical Research

Speaker: Amy Breedlove
Like New York for New England, North Carolina was the gateway through which so many of our ancestors went south and west.  This talk has two parts.  The first part  provides an overview of NC's history and geographic features that impacted settlement.  It will cover the settlement patterns by the various ethnic and religious groups and the migration routes out of the state.   The second part describes the types of records you can find in NC and where to look for them.  This will be followed by NC-specific sources and repositories.  There will be a short handout distributed for the talk, and there will be additional, more detailed handouts available elsewhere.  

Amy Breedlove is a native Virginian born near Richmond, but she's lived in Northern VA her whole life.  She’s a GMU graduate in History and a retired career Federal employee.  She got interested in genealogy at age 9, long before the internet, and has stayed interested since, although until she retired she didn’t have a whole lot of time to devote to her research.  Since then, she’s had a lot more success in filling out her family tree but still has a ways to go.  She has ancestors all throughout the Southeast, including NC. She’s been a member of FxGS for years, and also belongs to the Mount Vernon Genealogical Society, VGS, NGS, several other genealogical and historical societies.  She’s not a professional genealogist or speaker but is always willing to answer questions or help folks out.

This event is available at no charge on Zoom. 
Registration is required to attend on Zoom. Any handouts will be forwarded to members closer to the date of the event.
