First, a reminder: The Search Room will be closed May 26-28, 2012 for the Memorial Day holiday. For a full list of our closings see http://archives.ncdcr.gov/hours.htm.
Second, the lecture at the Friends of the Archives meeting this year will be “Researching the Tuscarora War: A Journey through the State Archives” by Dr. Rebecca Seaman and will be open to the public. Dr. Seaman, Chair of the Department of History and Political Science at Elizabeth City State University and author of an upcoming book on the Tuscarora War, will explore the causes that led to the uprising and highlight the use of the State Archives in her research. The meeting is scheduled for Monday, June 18, 2012 at 1 PM. A brief corporation meeting will precede the program. Light refreshments will follow the talk. A flyer for the event (PDF) is available from our website.
