Preparing for North Carolina Research

seal_of_north_carolina-svgNot sure about going to Raleigh on the trip in November? GRIVA’s October program addresses the holdings, the collections and the procedures of the North Carolina Archives. No North Carolina ancestors? That’s OK. You may learn about record groups that might also be available in other states. And the State Library is definitely not limited to North Carolina! Everyone should visit, no matter where their ancestor lived!

Douglas Brown will present “Researching at the North Carolina Archives” on Tuesday, October 25, 2016. Mr. Brown is the Public Services Unit Manager at the archives and supervises the operations and staff of the Reference Search Room. His expertise includes North Carolina History, Genealogy, court documents, probate records and archival primary resources.

Join us at 7:45 p.m. in the Beck Room at the Bon Air Presbyterian Church, 9201 West Huguenot Road, Richmond, Virginia. There will be a short GRIVA meeting before the program with refreshments and social time afterwards. Our meetings are free to the public and visitors are welcome.
