2013 NCGS Award Winners

The 2013 NCGS Awards were presented at the NCGS annual meeting during the Fall Workshop on 9 November 2013 at the McKimmon Center in Raleigh. Three individuals and one society were recognized for outstanding published efforts and personal contributions to the North Carolina genealogical community.


“The award for excellence in periodical publishing for a newsletter published by a local North Carolina genealogical society” went to Lines & Pathways of Edgecombe, published by the Edgecombe County Genealogical Society and edited by Zora Drake-Richman. Accepting the award were Ms. Drake-Richman and Betty Cobb Batchelor. This polished, well laid out quarterly keeps its members up to date through calendars of events, membership information, publications lists, an ancestor exchange feature, and guidelines for submitting articles. A cross between a newsletter and a journal, it treats its readers to interesting, documented, member-submitted articles ranging from family research to historical subjects to abstracts of original records and local newspapers.
