Wake County Genealogical Society (WCGS) meeting - open to all
Olivia Raney Local History Library
4016 Carya Drive
Interpreting NC Land Records
Speaker: David McCorkle
Learn how to read and interpret various documents associated with land records: deeds, warrents, land entries, land patents, surveys, and caveats.
David grew up in Charlotte and after graduating from UNC Chapel Hill in 1979 he remained in the Triangle area working in the software industry. He currently owns and operates a small software company in Cary and manages to squeeze in genealogy and local history in his "spare" time.
By the early 1880s, all ancestral lines on his father's side are present in what is now Union County, NC, some as early as the 1750s, and almost all remained there until the 1920s. Two lines, Traywick and Thomas, were briefly in Wake County in the late 1700s.
All WCGS meetings are free and open to the public. Bring a friend! Refreshments will be served during social time after the presentation.
