Pitt County, the basics

History Lesson:



So i've been M.I.A for a while. I started a new job months ago. I actually have 2, now 3 jobs right now. Two of which are based from home. So I am very busy....

However, family history is always on my mind. Even more so after watching 3 episodes of Who Do You Think You Are? this past week. Ron Bergeron's French-Canadian roots and Zooey Deshanel's family ties to the Abolitionist (anti-slavery) movement and the Underground Railroad have inspired me to return to my genealogical search.

I need to start from the beginning
Pitt County, North Carolina (which includes Winterville and Greenville, family locations) was founded in 1760. 

There are quite a few historical societies based on Pitt Co. I will need to revisit them
