This week’s blogging prompt is the State of North Carolina. Blog about an ancestor or your families connection to North Carolina. If you don’t have any connections to North Carolina, find a North Carolina resource useful for genealogy research to highlight and write about. This week’s prompt runs from 3/24/2013 – 3/30/2013. If you choose to follow along, I would appreciate a mention to the Hidden Genealogy Nuggets website.
I do not have a whole lot of family connections to North Carolina. The ones which I’m aware of are 2nd cousins once removed. They were born in the 1980s, so presumably they are still living. Having to think about North Carolina and looking for family connections there has prompted me to to try to reconnect with that branch of the family. However, that is for a different time. Since there’s no family connections which I can find other than living relatives, I decided to find a North Carolina Genealogy Resource to highlight instead.
Sorry about the late post this week. I normally have these on autopilot waiting to go out a couple week in advance. This week I format to submit scheduled in WordPress.
The North Carlina Digital Heritage has a great collection of online digital records. Below are just a few of the online collections
