Spring Break . . . Almost Here

Spring break is almost here for the college where I work. I plan to take advantage of my time off to do a little genealogical research! First stop . . . the North Carolina State Library and Archives in Raleigh. I've got a long list of things to copy there as well as more work on a project that I'm hoping to turn into an article for publication.

Next stop . . . New Bern, North Carolina. The North Carolina Genealogical Society has a regional workshop there. Craig Scott is the featured speaker.

After heading back to Raleigh, I'll be off to Monroe County, Mississippi to do some digging in the courthouses. (The chancery is in the old post office building.) If I have time, I want to head over to Lowndes County to do a little digging as well, but I may have to save that for another trip. This is for a project in which another researcher and I are collaborating.

I do want to find a little time for R & R in the midst of all this so I'll probably try to give myself a little break once in awhile from the research!

happy digging--and may you also sample some new barbecue places along the way!
