Wake County Genealogical Society - September Meeting and Presentation

Using Church Records for Genealogy Research
Tuesday September 25, 6:30 pm to 8:15 pm
Olivia Raney Local History Library
4016 Carya Drive
Raleigh, NC 27610

Speaker: Diane L. Richard, Owner & President, Mosiac Research and Project Management

Discovering where denominational records are held, what might be available, and how to access them can challenge us. Increasingly though, helpful finding materials are being published or placed online to assist in nonsecular research. Fortunately, we also find online archives (digitized records) of religious records we can access from home. This increased access to these incredibly valuable and insightful records enriches our family history research. Let’s explore how to research the spiritual affiliations and faith-based lives of our ancestors. General resources and strategies will be discussed as well as some specifics regarding Methodist, Quaker, Baptist, Moravian, Presbyterian, and the records of other denominations.

All WCGS meetings are free and open to the public. Bring a friend! Refreshments will be served during social time before the presentation. Presentation will start at 7:00.
