The newsletter for one of the genealogy societies that I belong too recently won an award, the Joe M. McLaurin Newsletter Award from the North Carolina Society of Historians, Inc. The Heritage Trail is the newsletter of the Heritage Genealogical Society, a society that covers Lenoir, Greene & Jones counties in North Carolina. My father’s family is in part from Lenoir County.
Since I joined the society, I’ve tried to get involved and have submitted entries for the newsletter. I have made two contributions so far
- transcribed a couple of marriage notices from a 1909 issue of the Kinston Free Press for the Nov 08 issue
- did a short write up of the Library of Congress Chronicling America historical newspaper site for the Aug 08 issue
