Who are the bloggers?

Our bloggers are all employees of the State Library of North Carolina and work in the Government & Heritage Library.  Each blogger is an expert in their field and blogs on events, developments, and news for a particular topic or department.

    The pop-up “snap-shots” are really annoying.

      I agree please Kill these they just repeat what is already seen. It is a beautiful site otherwise. How about a separate blog just for genealogy!

      1. Reference and Outreach says:

        Thank you for your comments and suggestions. Readers of the blog do have the option of turning off the preview/snap-shots. To turn off the snap-shots put your mouse over the link or photo; when the preview appears you can turn off the preview (it should appear on the upper right or lower right corner).

        In the coming weeks please be on the look out for regular Genealogy postings and thank you for reading!
