The National Genealogical Society’s Research in the States series, of which this book is one, had its start in the NGS Quarterly with the publication of Master Plan for North Carolina Research in 1987. The Quarterly continued to publish state guides and NGS later issued many of them as special publications. This series includes both revised editions of earlier guides and some new states. Additional states are planned and Family Roots Publishing plans to distribute them as they are printed.
