You must register for the meeting before April 28.

The April WCGS meeting will be held virtually using the GoToWebinar application and generously hosted by the North Carolina Genealogical Society.

Date/Time:  Tuesday, April 28, 2020 at 6:30pm ET
Speaker: George Thomas
Topic: In search of Tri-Racial Heritage - All of us with roots to the earliest years of NC must consider the importance of racial mixing. Our skin-based moralities have evolved as have the laws governing the diverse people. With race as the central theme, George will tell of his ponderings about family and their neighbors who struggled to live among each other. His story involves whites, free people of color, slaves, murder and the eventual exodus from our state. In his words, “a bizarre story line but one worth telling”.  He’ll also outline the resources used to document his story with all its twists and turns.
