  • 8 July 2016, 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT - The North Carolina Genealogical Society will present a webinar with Craig Roberts Scott, MA, CG, FUGA. "Finding Women: Maiden Name Not Known" (An encore recording will be presented during a Free Viewing Period: 5-7 August 2016.) Learning the maiden name of a wife can be one of the more difficult tasks in genealogical research. It is clear that women can be hard to find. At least more difficult than finding the husbands. When a maiden name is hard to find you may have to learn it through the records of the men in her life. A professional genealogical and historical researcher for more than twenty-nine years, Craig specializes in the records of the National Archives, especially those that relate to the military. He was the Clan Scott Genealogist (1985-2000). For more information and to register go to
  • 10 - 13 May 2017 - STOP THE PRESS! HOLD THE PHONE! The National Genealogical Society Conference is coming to Raleigh in 2017. Stay tuned here and to the NGS website.
