NCGS Webinars – The North Carolina Series

Helen F. M. Leary 

helen-book-edited

The North Carolina Series of webinars is produced by the North Carolina Genealogical Society for all interested in the history and genealogy of this state and its people. North Carolina’s renowned genealogist, Helen F. M. Leary, CG (Emeritus), FASG, begins the series with the question: "Tarheels in Your Family Tree?".
 
Genealogists will find that many families came through North Carolina - some stayed, others moved on, and a few returned. The information Ms. Leary and other speakers provide will be useful to all researchers of southern states and their peoples.
 
The text for this series is North Carolina Research Genealogy and Local History, Helen F. M. Leary, CG, FASG, Editor. It is available in the NCGS Store.

Did you miss Mark Lowe's live webinar? This is another opportunity to hear it!

NC Taxes, People, Places, Time, and Delinquency

Free Viewing 3-5 October 2014

Mark Lowe photo   This recorded webinar by J. Mark Lowe will be free for a three-day viewing on the NCGS website. Follow the link below to the registration form.

Discover the variety of North Carolina tax records, and how they can tell you more than the amount due. Learn where they are located, and when to look at alternate sources for information.
   Taxation in the Americas began within the colonies for the crown. By the time, the constitution was written in 1787, all colonies were taxing citizens on property, capitation (head), livestock, and other properties. The constitution gave specific authority to the state to levy and collect taxes. For purposes of our discussion, we will focus on the levy on people (poll tax), property and other personalty.

   The North Carolina General Assembly in 1715 defined taxable persons as free Males over sixteen years of age. Basically a tax list is a register of free males, land owners, and slave owners who, by nature of their age or ownership, are required to pay taxes to the governmental authority. But there is so much more to learn.

   For more information about the speaker, J. Mark Lowe, please see our flyer (pdf file).

   After 5 October, the “NC Taxes: People, Places, Time, and Delinquency” video will only be accessible on the website to NCGS members as a member benefit. NCGS members and non-members may also purchase the webinar on a CD, which includes the syllabus, from the NCGS online bookstore.

Please note that the syllabus (handout) is only available to NCGS members in the members only section and to purchased CDs of the webinar.
