Reminder: Next WCGS Virtual Meeting - Tuesday, July 23 at 6:30pm

There is still time to register for this event.

Tuesday, Jul 23 @ 6:30pm - Virtual
Topic:  People Not Property
Speaker: Tammy Brunner,   Wake County Register of Deeds

What are slave deeds and what can we learn from them? "Slave deeds" are property deeds--bills of sale, deeds of trust, divisions of property--registered with county courts and registers of deeds that contain information about enslaved individuals. Sometimes these individuals are listed only by number, but more often they are listed by name and age, providing invaluable historical information for historians and genealogists. Learn about the work of the Wake County Register of Deeds and the People Not Property project that helped pull out these names and information about these sometimes forgotten people. 
Join us!  Free and virtual!
