Attn: FCGS Members

 

Our February 7, 2012 program will be presentations of North Carolina Civil War letters, diaries and memorabilia provided by YOU.  No matter where you live, this is a project that all members can participate in.

 

So ~ 

 

Please dig deeply into your family treasures and research files and notify either John Reynolds at FCGS-Editor@triad.rr.com or Jerry Loafman, President, at jloafman1@triad.rr.com of what you have to offer.  In addition to using the material at the February program we would also like to print some of the documents in our FCGS Journal.  It would be grand if someone discovers they have a photograph made during the Civil War.

 

Thank you for helping to make this one of our most interesting projects.  Not only will our ancestors, and the war, become more real for us as we read correspondence between family members, but we can analyze the language used, the style of the envelopes, the stamps, foods mentioned and much more.

 

A very interesting website:

This website has Online Exhibits and explains the types of photography that existed during this period.
