Upcoming Online Meeting
Ask a Professional + Annual Meeting / Birthday Party
Featuring Diane L. Richard
THURSDAY, December 3 at 7:00 PM
We will be having our D-OGS annual meeting and Birthday Party ONLINE on THURSDAY December 3 at 7:00PM.  We regret not being able to have our traditional meal and social gathering, but we have planned an evening that should be entertaining as well as useful to your research.
Do you have a "brick wall" or genealogical conundrum and want some advice on where to turn next?  We have invited professional genealogist Diane Richard to help!    She obviously can't solve your specific problem, but she can give advice on where to look for answers and things you might not have thought of.   Although Diane specializes in NC research, she is familiar with resources nationwide so your questions do not have to be restricted to this area.  To better insure your questions are answered properly, we ask that you submit them in advance by Monday November 30 to vicepresident@dogsnc.org .   She will take questions not submitted if there is time, but those in advance will take priority.  Even if you don't have a specific question, this is a great opportunity to learn.
More good news!  We will indeed be having our annual D-OGS trivia quiz covering general genealogy, NC history, and NC trivia.  It will be given live on your computer screen kind of like a game show, so you don't need anything to participate other than your mind.
