Wake County Genealogical Society - May Meeting and Presentation

Tuesday, May 22, 2018 @ 6:30pm - 8:15pm
Olivia Raney Local History Library
4016 Carya Drive
Raleigh, NC 27610

Topic: Researching Early New England Ancestors

Speaker: Jane Bartlett

Those who can trace their roots to the first century of European settlement of New England (beginning with the landing of the Mayflower in 1620) are fortunate to have ancestors who expected that the major events of their lives would be part of the public record. My presentation will focus on the resources readily available for researching in this document-rich part of the country.

Bio: Most of my English ancestors arrived in the New World either with the Mayflower at Plymouth Plantation in 1620 or came to the Massachusetts Bay Colony during the next twenty years during what-was-called The Great Migration….and nearly all of them stayed in Massachusetts for the next several hundred years. I was born in Vermont of parents whose roots can be traced to that period of emigration. My own New England family research began in the late 1980s when, as an extra duty, I was assigned to head the Genealogy Department in the El Paso (Texas) Public Library. It's been an obsession since.

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.
