Hello readers – exciting news!
My blog entry on the “Grandfather Clause” Voting Registrations was republished in the Granville County Genealogical Society’s quarterly journal. The name of the journal is called “Granville Connections” and the issue is Volume 22, Number 2, June 2016.
Membership in the society includes digital and/or hard copies of the quarterly journal. If you are not a member, do not worry, the entirety of my blog entry that was included in the journal can be read here.
You can learn more about the Granville County Genealogical Society as well as sign up for membership on their website here. The society has published several books including cemetery surveys which are also available for purchase on their website.
A brief summary on the history of the organization:
The Granville County Genealogical Society 1746, Inc. is a non-profit organization, which was organized in August 1994 from a group that places emphasis on Genealogical material concerning persons or activities in the area of Granville County. The Society was expected to have a slow start, but with enthusiasm and hard work of members, the society is at a point far ahead of what was expected. The society has over 245 members from every state in the U.S.
The Cemetery Committee is presently involved in surveying, cataloging and collecting cemetery data from church cemeteries, city cemeteries, family owned cemeteries, etc. for future publications. Plans are to publish several books with the data that has been collected to date.
I’m delighted that my research will be read by a broader audience and I thank you all for the support. Please continue to keep sharing these blog posts, so that the history of our ancestors will live on forever.
