North Carolina: A Major Gateway for Family Historians with Southern Ancestors

From the British colonial era to the post-Revolutionary period to the mid-19th century, Southern settlers were on the move.  Many, many thousands traveled to North Carolina--either from Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania or from abroad through the North Carolina Atlantic ports.  So often, these folks populated this colony/state, but eventually moved on into Kentucky, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi and especially Tennessee. 

Diane L. Richard will help us learn why North Carolina is so significant to Southern family historians, the major migration routes they took to settle other Southern states, and how to use a key tool--creating timelines--to help manage the locations and time periods of our very energetic families.

This seminar features three in-depth sessions:

  • Mostly Involuntary Servitude
  • Early Migration In, Across and Out of North Carolina
  • Sign of the Times: Timelines in Genealogy
