CHANGE: Our meeting will be
on Saturday, January 14th at 2 pm in the McLean Room
at the Robeson County Library.
Henry Singletary, President of the Mother County Genealogical Society in Bladenboro, NC will be our guest speaker.
The Bladenboro Historical Society and
Mother County Genealogical Society have created a Family History Room
as part of the Bladenboro History Museum. It contains a variety of materials related to Bladen County families,
not just the ones from Bladenboro.
They maintain a genealogical database
of people connected to Bladen County, maintain a variety of family history and
location-related research books and house donated research collections.
Other items include photographs and memorabilia donated by local families.
Henry Singletary will describe how the collection developed, current projects and future plans.
Because Robeson County developed from Bladen County, the information is valuable to those with
Robeson ancestors for the colonial and revolutionary eras.
Hope to see you there.
