Revived Blitz: Postings for McDowell County, NCGenWeb

Today is June 28th, 2013; I want to apologize to everyone for not posting in a long, long, long time.
Life jumped out at me last Spring, May 2012 to be exact, when my eldest son got up the nerve to ask his wonderful girlfriend to marry him. That wedding took place the end of October 2012. Then in December 2012, my other son ask his wonderful girlfriend to marry him and that wedding took place last Saturday. So planning two rehearsal dinners in the last 10 months has occupied my time. Now I am ready to get back into a regular routine. Please accept my apology and promise to do better in the future.

Here is my first post of many to come: Check out the NCGenWeb Project on Facebook.
The North Carolina GenWeb project is dedicated to providing free access to genealogy information. Staffed by volunteers in each NC County, researchers have access to local and regional information.
The NCGenWeb Project is part of the USGenWeb Project. Yes, this group is also volunteer and works to provide free genealogy websites for genealogical research in every county and every state of the United States. As quoted from the USGenWeb site “This Project is non-commercial and fully committed to free genealogy access for everyone.”
