D-OGS ANNUAL BIRTHDAY PARTY!
 
Wednesday, December 7, 2022
6:30PM - IN PERSON
7:00PM - ONLINE      
 
IT'S TIME TO CELEBRATE!
 
The D-OGS Annual Birthday Party and Quiz will be Wednesday evening December 7 both in person at OWASA and online via Zoom.   We traditionally held this event at a restaurant, but due to the success of last year's meeting and the complications of hybrid meetings we decided to stick with our normal meeting room at OWASA in Carrboro.
 
IN PERSON PARTY – PLEASE RSVP
We will be providing some wonderful desserts and refreshments for those attending in person, as well as various savory snacks. This is a great time to meet other researchers and exchange ideas, or just socialize. 
 
****It is important for those in person to RSVP so we can get a head count – simply click to send an email to vicepresident@dogsnc.org
 
PROGRAM
We will be having our tradition 20 question quiz mixed in with several short presentations by David McCorkle on some overlooked county records at the State Archives: Treasurer and Comptroller County Settlements, County Slavery Files, County CRX records, and others
