Jane Haldeman will present on Researching Colonial American Ancestors: Southern Colonies
Did your ancestor live in one of the Original Thirteen Colonies? Were they here before the Revolutionary War? Each colonist came to the “new world” for different reasons and each colony was different. They came for both religious and economic opportunities. The Southern Colonies, Maryland, Virginia, North and South Carolina, and Georgia were rural, with planters and farmers. Besides English immigrants there were Scots, Scots-Irish, Germans and Africans. Find out what records are available and where they are, so you can learn about your Southern Colonial American Ancestors.

EWGS Writing Contest 2021 Submission Deadline  (Special Events)
8:00 am to 11:59 pm
Online Entry Submission

This year the writing contest theme centers around family legend, rumor, or a skeleton in the closet. Did you hear a family legend about how you were related to someone famous but didn’t know if it was true? Was there a rumor about an ancestor that you heard or a “skeleton in the closet” that no-one knew?

Entries are due May 31, 2021. You may email Dr. Nancy Todd at digestcoordinator@ewgsi.org if you have any questions about a story you are considering. She will not be serving as a judge and not submitting a story, so she is free to help others. Good luck!
