I fell in love with Pinterest when it first came on the scene. My Pinterest boards became my bulletin boards helping to track new recipes, fashions, crafts…… Well, you get the picture.
Then I discovered Genealogy on Pinterest!
Use Pinterest to Find North Carolina Genealogy Related Sites
- Historic maps related to North Carolina and its neighbors
- A video where you can hear the Carolina Brogue – an accent unique to the NC Outer Banks
- A link to colonial North Carolina currency
- Books on North Carolina genealogy. These might be general NC genealogy books or books related to specific counties.
- North Carolina in the Civil War
The list grows and changes daily. Check back often for new pins and genealogy sources.
Use Pinterest to Organize Your North Carolina Genealogy Research
Pinterest users typically accumulate a lot of pins related to their interests. Genealogists on Pinterest are no different. (Okay, at least I am no different!) Creating virtual bulletin boards on various topics related to North Carolina genealogy keeps me organized and able to quickly find that source I need to use. Here are a few examples of my North Carolina genealogy boards. (I’m still creating new ones as I have the need.)
