Early Migration Across and Out of North Carolina
with Diane Richard
Bayland Community Center
6400 Bissonnet Blvd.
Houston, TX 77074
Understanding North Carolina and its unique immigration and migration history increases your chances of successfully locating your North Carolinian ancestors. Many individuals and families migrated to North Carolina, especially in the colonial and pre-Civil War periods. Families spent a few years, a few decades, or one or more generations in North Carolina. They often hopscotched across the state before migrating to adjoining states and beyond. Many have North Carolina roots to be discovered in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
Diane will explore migrating North Carolinians – the history of the times and the documentary trail left behind. Overviews of when, where, and who, including surviving records and how to access them will be shared. Diane will also discuss when various records created by the government came into existence, extant naturalization records, and more.
