Some of you may have noticed our new look. We have also added several publications - especially several new "Family History" books.
In the past, most of our publications have been a straightforward compilation of records to assist genealogy researchers. Types of records included delayed births, deaths, out-of-county deaths, and marriages.
Our new "Family History" books concentrate on a specific family line. We begin with a particular ancestor and list the descendants.
Added book William Henry Duckworth and Catherine Singleton: A Family of Burke County, North Carolina
Added book Rebecca Riddle's Descendants of Madison County, North Carolina and Barney Landers' Descendants of Madison County, North Carolina
