There is a new essay available under the “Find Your Civil War Ancestors” tab. “Find Your Civil War Ancestors” is a project we started during October of last year where members of our staff try to research one of their Civil War era relatives and then write about what they’ve found. The new entry is by Tiffanie who wrote about a North Carolina relative, Thomas Hatten Langley, that until recently she didn’t know she had.
Also, the new Civil War themed 2011 North Carolina Archives Week poster and bookmark are now available to view on the Society of North Carolina Archivists Archives Week website and blog. Copies of the poster and bookmark will be sent out in early October to libraries, archives and other institutions around the state that placed orders for them earlier in the year. There are also PDF versions of both items on the blog and website so that you can print your own copy if you would like.
