Making sense of a community's church & social history

My voice has remained silent for about a month now, but I have not been on a true hiatus. I've been searching microfilmed newspaper reels...

   ...reading the sermons of James Walker Hood...
                 ...searching out sources on

                         ...ordering and now reading several books
                                            via InterLibrary Loan....

You may also notice that I've tinkered with the pages at the top of the navigation bar. 

I've decided that in order to thoroughly prepare for writing the book, I must forego my former routine of serial GeneaBlogging for:
  • Amaneunsis Monday: The Civil War Pension Files of Isaac Carter, and
  • Treasure Chest Thursday: Beginning an Inventory

Beginning this Fall I will be using my Craven County, North Carolina resources to illustrate how you can develop a social/religious history of your ancestors in their own communities. And you will be able to find links to these posts on the African-American Church History page.

Once this initial phase is completed, I will continue with The Civil War Pension File of Isaac Carter.

I hope you'll stop by...and please feel free to interact for our mutual benefit!
