Wake Treasures Journal just published. New Issue. New Look!

Volume 30, Issue 1 of our award-winning journal is now available on the WCGS website. Access this issue via the member options after logging on at We can't wait for you to see the new look!

Here are some comments from the journal editor to introduce this issue. 

Dear Readers,

 Spring is upon us, the coronavirus vaccine is here, and life is slowly returning to normal. The pandemic is sure to have honed our online research skills, and I’m sure you’ll be glad to be able to research in person once more as the archives and state library are now offering appointments for in-person research. It is also conference season, with the National Genealogical Society hosting its annual conventionon  virtually in May. Wake County Genealogical Society’s own Diane L. Richard and David M. McCorkle will be presenting and are not to be missed! 

As you may have noticed, this issue has a new cover that we are proud to debut, along with our new logo. This issue of Wake Treasures is full of continued series, such as the final part of Carey Faisons “Railroads, Hortons, and Faisons,” the 1897 Raleigh Colored School Census, Wake County Records Batch #3, Wake County Records of Slaves and Free Negroes, 1721-1829 and Soldiers Home records, while also introducing new content from Debra Blake, a secretary’s report from the Mordecai family, and Trade Licenses of 1876. 

Without the help of an array of volunteers this journal wouldn’t be possible. Please consider submitting your Wake family history, transcribing, or selecting content as the Content Curator. If you are interested in contributing to the journal, please contact me at Many thanks to our contributors, transcribers, indexer, and proofreader!

Hope you enjoy,

Donna Shackle, Editor
