Washington County is Mine!

Back in July, I became quite involved with the NCGenWeb Project.  I agreed to be webmaster and it escalated from there.  I took on Onslow & Jones counties because of my Koonce roots.   Then, in August, I had the opportunity to become the site coordinator for my top, WISH LIST county – Washington!

Washington County is the home of my grandmother Alice.   Though I’ve only been to her hometown of Plymouth one time (as a 9 month old child),  it is in Washington County where I first began my online genealogical searching.  I quickly learned of some of the great resources that were available on the site, and part of the reason I am so *into* newspaper transcriptions now is b/c I wanted to give back to others as I felt they’d done for me.

So, when the opportunity presented itself, I jumped on it!  I am now your county host for (the newly redesigned! cuz you know how I do!)  Washington County, NC page.

    Good for you, Taneya! I’m happy for you!

    I made a strong attempt to get involved as a volunteer for my “home” county, but I was shunned and chastised because apparently I don’t have the level of tech training that is needed/wanted. Of course I can submit documents (and will do so), but I was hoping to become a bit more involved because my county is rarely updated and I KNOW things have been sent in because the documents that I’ve sent myself haven’t been added. Oh, well. Perhaps in my next life… lol. 🙂

    Congratulations, Taneya! I am involved with the Genealogy Trails websites for several counties in Maryland, and it feels good to be able to give back!
