Welcome!

Welcome!
I realized quickly that I’d have to “think outside the box” to learn about my ancestors. I LOVE to interview people, and listen to stories about "the older days" when life seemed a little slower and simpler. I study USGS maps, plats, read chanceries, look for long forgotten cemeteries and try to help preserve memories people share with me. This blog is ad free, so it's easier to focus on sharing stories. Feel free to sign the guestbook, or join the FaceBook group. Even if we aren't related by DNA, I'd still love to hear about your research efforts and family stories. I am interested in posting (to this blog) stories relevant to the Mecklenburg-Brunswick families.

Julie's Will Inventory, From Courthouses



Julie Cabitto’s Will Inventory
9 June 2018, updated:_______

I have a copy of each of these wills from the will books at these various courthouses, unless it is notated the copy is from a chancery case. I took photographs of  wills that were part of chanceries. I know who each of these people are, they are related to Fannie Gray's family. Counties other then Mecklenburg and Brunswick are pre-Mecklenburg, VA days. All scanned images, willing to share. Will book and page numbers will be added soon.
