I know its been a while since I been on, had alot on the plate lately, like well I had to celebrate my 50th birthday and finally visit Historic Stagville Plantation in Durham, NC such an awesome place…. and there is always classwork and genealogy. I love the hunt of it, finally finding that one ancester you been searching for is an great high!! Beside http://www.ancestry.com I wrote about it in a previous blog. Another awesome site is the Register of Deeds in your local town or the area you are searching in. They have everyting from births,deaths, deeds wills etc. http://www.registerofdeeds.org as said go to your local courthouse or county website its all right there where you can search…. the tax office is another good place to search because it will give address etc and even other family memebers. But bear in mind they only go back so far on those records. Register of deeds goes back much further and is also linked with local genealogy groups. So check these places out and visit a whole new world in your quest for Family History….
Since getting divorced finally 2 years ago after waiting 3 years I have come to the conclusion that the NC Legal System sucks whether it be the lawyers or the system in general I not sure but no one should really have to wait 5 years to have everything completed for a divorce. Its crazy. oh you can go to the Law Bar people and complain http://www.ncbar.gov/ but in my opinion the people there are not very nice its like you are bothering them. Not getting the answers you need or the help you are asking for is not a good deal in my book.
So how do you get anything done? Good question. I haven’t really found the answer other than email your lawyer alot and check the courthouse to see if anything has been submitted. Otherwise you are in for a long waiting game and paying money you don’t have. Forget contacting a judge or the one in charge they never answer people just don’t return phone calls like they should or feel your time is just as important as theirs. So make sure fully when you get married that you are in it for life, because divorce is not an easy path to go and even though my ex spouse was the one at fault, don’t trust nothing he or anyone in the legal system says because their 2 days may turn into 2 years…. Take nothing for chance.
