Two free webinars scheduled for the end of September

The Georgia Genealogy Society will present “North Carolina Land Grants Overview” on Wednesday, Sept. 26 at 8 p.m.

Land records can provide useful genealogical information beyond just time and place, such as relationships, clues to wealth, occupations, neighbors, and more. Land Grants are of particular interest because they represent the first time a particular plot of land was allocated to settlers, and also because the grant process required a number of steps and often took several years. North Carolina has original documents going back to 1663, and the free website www.nclandgrants.com has searchable data on all the grants along with many original document images.

This webinar will be an overview of the historical immigration and naturalization records available at the National Archives in Washington, D.C. These records begin in the early 1900s and continue until 1975. Participants will learn about research aids and learn how to request files from the National Archives.
