The Moore County Genealogical Society meets bimonthly at the Moore County Library in Carthage on the third Saturday of the months of Jan., Mar., Mary., July, Sept., Nov..  It  mseet at 10:30 am. Every November the annual meeting is held for the election of new officers and directors.

NEXT MEETING – September 20, 2014 at 10:30 a.m. at the Moore County Library, 101 Saunders Street, Carthage, NC.  Linda Tant will do a program on "The Lure of Gold and the Prospect of Coal." She will talk about the early mining in Moore County and how the transportation and economic situation changed when investors came into the area and bought out many family mines in the mid-1800's.

Linda grew up in Virginia and Florida, but when asked, she identifies Moore County as her home. She spent many summers and holidays here, visiting her grandparents Aubrey and Blannie Keith who lived near Cameron. She has been an avid genealogist since her early 20's; she thinks mostly in an attempt to figure out how all the people who attended their large family reunions each year were actually related. After moving to Moore County in 2010 when she purchased the home in which her mother and grandfather were born, she has become fascinated with the county development and the events that influenced the lives of her ancestors here. Professionally, she writes training and creates training videos for software used in the legal profession. Before moving to this area, she lived in Charlotte for 18 years and worked in software development and technical training roles in the mortgage and real estate industries.
