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.
