Finding and Understanding NC Court Records  (Webinars)
6:30 pm
Courts have always dealt with crimes and disputes, but in the past they also handled much more routine items that can be of great interest to your genealogical research. These include many functions now performed by other government offices such as proving deeds, probate, petitions, taxes, appointment of local officials, licenses, bastardy, manumission – the list goes on. To complicate things, the type of courts and what areas they were responsible for has changed over time. This discussion will help you know what you can find along with how and where to find it. David McCorkle will provide this free online program, presented by Wake County Genealogical Society.
Virtual and free with registration. For details and registration go to
