Wake Treasures - Vol 30, Issue 2 is available at the wakecogen website

Congratulations to Wake Treasures editor Donna Shackle and her team. Wake Treasures is the recipient of the 2021 North Carolina Genealogical Society’s Award for Excellence in Periodical Publishing (Journal). This is a fantastic accomplishment. Donna and her group of volunteers certainly represent WCGS well. 

Here is a note about what you can expect in this latest edition of the journal from Donna:

Fall is here as is the newest issue of our journal.  In this issue, Wake County Genealogical Society’s President, Carla Stancil, has written two articles: “How the Goat Cart Became a Photo Prop”; and “Remembering Mamie Allen”, a recollection regarding her dear aunt.  Over the next year Wake Treasures will be featuring a short series on the Wake-County-based Allen family.  This issue includes the completion of the 1897 Raleigh Colored School Census and highlights items from the Crowder Collection held at the State Archives of North Carolina.  This collection includes several diary entries from an unknown male that gives us a glimpse into the past.  Following these articles are the Wake County Civil Action Papers Concerning Land, 1814.
It is my hope that you enjoy this issue, and as always, I want to thank the volunteers who keep the journal in publication.  If you enjoy the journal and would like to become a part of the journal team, please reach out to me at and I will be happy to discuss volunteering opportunities.
Happy Reading, Donna, editor
