The Government and Heritage History blog from the State Library of the North Carolina (GHL Blog) has become a favorite blog of mine. If you research North Carolina families, be sure and subscribe to GHL Blog. It focuses on providing information about the collections, online resources and the services offered by the library. The knowledgeable staff are a wonderful resource, too.
Recently the GHL blog has run a three part series on NC Appentice bonds. Included was discussion on the history of apprentice bonds, the laws surrounding the bonds and finally example of what might be found in a bond. Having been researching in apprentice bonds lately, I found the posts very helpful and saved a lot of time researching the laws on my own.
What else have I learned lately…..
- I learned more about the higher education for women in 1916. (It’s a great read, by the way.)
- I learned about rare animal species of NC. Okay, I know that’s not genealogy, but I did major in biology.
- I learned where to find NC session laws online. A great resource to have at my finger tips.
So, check it out and let me know what you learn.
