While this isn’t really Civil War related, it might help those of you who want to sharpen your genealogical skills, which could help you with your Civil War based research.
The Friends of the Archives will sponsor a “Finding Your Ancestors” genealogical workshop at the Archives and History/State Library Building in Raleigh on Saturday, September 24, 2011. This program will focus on using the records of the North Carolina State Archives and is open to anyone interested in learning more about their individual family history through genealogical research.
