Discovering where denominational records are held, what might be available, and how to access them can challenge us.   Please join us on Wednesday, September 4 at 7:00PM at the OWASA Community Center, 400 Jones Ferry Rd, Carrboro, NC to hear nationally acclaimed speaker Diane L. Richard discuss how you can find and use these records for your genealogical research.   Helpful finding materials are being published or placed online to assist in non-secular research. Fortunately, we also find online archives (digitized records) of religious records we can access from home. This increased access to these incredibly valuable and insightful records enriches our family history research. Let’s explore how to research the spiritual affiliations and faith-based lives of our ancestors. General resources and strategies will be discussed as well as some specifics regarding Methodist, Quaker, Baptist, Moravian, Presbyterian, and the records of other denominations.

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