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.

1904 Petition for the Brunswick Methodist Episcopal Church
I found a chancery case I thought might interest others. Only two pages. The board of trustees for a new church in Brodnax are listed, with a date of 25 Oct 1904. I scanned the source info page from Library of Virginia's website too.On a future trip I'll get a picture of the church to update this post
