Welcome to the Cabarrus Genealogy Society website and blog!

The Cabarrus Genealogy Society is dedicated to helping you research your Cabarrus County ancestors and their livesWith our new web design and blog we hope to create accessible content presented in a user-friendly format. We will be better able to share information about the society, genealogy events and programs, local genealogy and history resources, and more!

Our journal, The Cabarrus Golden Nugget is currently mailed directly to members, but future plans are to additionally make it available in the Members Only section. We will post information about various features and content as changes are made.

Take a look at the many books which have been published through the society and are available for purchase in the Publications section. Our library has a large and growing collection of genealogically related materials that will provide useful information about your ancestors.

Please join us at our monthly meetings and be sure to check out the blog which will regularly feature genealogy and local history stories. The blog will be linked to the Cabarrus Genealogy Society Facebook group page - be sure to "Like" us and request to join the group! 

Lastly, genealogy is no longer just collecting names and dates - it's also sharing your family stories! At the recent RootsTech conference in Salt Lake City, noted speaker Judy G. Russell (the Legal Genealogist www.legalgenealogist.com), explained that if family stories are not documented, they will be lost within three generations - even if not completely lost, facts will get confused with family lore. Share your stories! You are invited to comment on the blog posts and contact us (cabarrusgenealogysociety@gmail.com) to contribute your own stories.
