The North Carolina Genealogical Society is offering a free recorded webinar with Stewart Dunaway the weekend of August 5 – 7, titled Infrastructure Records of North Carolina and Their Use In Genealogical Research.
“Infrastructure records consist of roads, bridges, ferry, ordinary and mill records which define the necessary infrastructure to migrate across North Carolina and surrounding states. These records include petitions, reports, and contracts. Within the petition or reports, descriptions of landowners and neighbors can be provided. Reasons for their need or discontinuance are well described thereby providing insight to the area development and migration paths, perhaps answering why a relative moved from one location to another.
“This presentation will cover the record types and what genealogy information can be found within them. Throughout the presentation actual documents and examples are included.”
