November 2019 Meeting -  Tracing your Revolutionary War Ancestor in the County Records at the State Archives of NC
by Alison Thurman, State Archives of North Carolina
WEDNESDAY November 6 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 AM
Duke Homestead, 2828 Duke Homestead Rd., Durham NC
When researching Revolutionary War ancestors, we tend to deal with national and state military records.  Did you know there is a rich collection of documents at the county level which can also be useful?  We invite you to hear Alison Thurman from the State Archives of North Carolina discuss records created on a county level in NC during the Revolutionary War and how to utilize the information they contain, whether it be used for proving an ancestor's patriotic service or providing a window into their daily life during the war.  Although some types of records are specific to North Carolina, others can apply to other colonial states.

Check our Events page for more information.

All D-OGS meetings are free and open to the public.
