On 30 Nov 2017, the Cabarrus Genealogy Society merged with Historic Cabarrus Association, Inc., a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that also benefits the historic interests of Cabarrus County, NC. As of that date, the Cabarrus Genealogy Society, Inc. became a subsidiary of Historic Cabarrus Association, Inc.
The Cabarrus Genealogy Society and Historic Cabarrus complement one another in mission and operations. The Cabarrus Genealogy Society was formed in 1993. Through the contributions of many dedicated members, we have sought to raise the standards of genealogical research and education in Cabarrus County through programs, publications, and the preservation of materials of genealogical and historical value. Historic Cabarrus was formed in 1973 by local citizens who were passionate about the preservation and restoration of the Historic Cabarrus County Courthouse. Historic Cabarrus has since maintained a museum and archive with a mission to showcase Cabarrus County historical collections and to preserve historical materials, oral histories, and architecture.
Lastly, genealogy is no longer just collecting names and dates - it's also sharing your family stories! Noted speaker Judy G. Russell (the Legal Genealogist www.legalgenealogist.com), explains 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, make Facebook posts, or contribute stories to the journal. E-mail us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
