How-to lessons/Lectures in Southern US Chat
I wanted to let everyone know that GFSErin
and GFSLball have decided to start having how-to lessons/lectures
periodically during their scheduled Southern US chats on Monday nights
from 9-10pm EST / 8-9 Central time. The first lesson will be held during
the chat on October 10th from 9-10pm. It will probably be during the
middle of the chat, but not sure when exactly during the hour. The topic
will be researching apprenticeship records in NC.
This is a very important research tool for
both white and free blacks before the Civil War. For free blacks in
Antebellum NC, this was often the only means of education. Apprenticeship
records are a good source for determining parents of a child. In many
cases, wills were not left and census records before 1850 did not list the
entire household. Apprenticeship records (at least in NC) offer a great
alternative for connecting families.
Future topics include: Georgia Land
Lotteries, and searching for names in ancestry.com census database.
Come join us on October 10th to find out more
of what they offer and how to find them in NC!
If you want to attend this "real time"
online chat, you merely sign online a few minutes before 9PM Eastern US time on
