Presentation Description:
So you’ve researched all the deeds and land grants that mention you ancestor and think you’re done with land records.  Have you looked at other land documents like ejectments or processions?  Do you know what they are and how to use them?    Find out at the April meeting of the Durham-Orange Genealogical Society!   For the past year local author and historian Stewart Dunaway has been photographing, researching and publishing all the miscellaneous county land record papers located at the State Archives of NC.  This had given him unique insight into the value of these documents for genealogical research which he will share in his presentation.  These documents are not online anywhere, so this will be a great opportunity to see how they can help your research.

Speaker Biography:

This research led him to the State Archives, where he began researching road petition documents. Now, 10-years later, he completed every county’s - road, bridge, mill, ordinary, and ferry records – for the entire State. This represents 48,673 pages published in almost 175 volumes.
