Mrs. Hockaday’s presentation describes a research project conducted by students at the Cape Fear Community College on pre-Civil War property records of enslaved persons from the archives of the New Hanover County Register of Deeds.  Professor James Burke and over 30 students located and transcribed the handwritten records and entered them in a database that is available at Cape Fear Community College’s LibGuide on the New Hanover County Slave Deeds. Mrs. Ingram Hockaday assisted with the compilation and editing of the work.

 The event is free and open to the public.  If you have any questions, you can contact Mr. Bobby Wynn, Director of Library Services at (910) 672-1232 or Jan Whitfield at (910) 672-1750.

We hope that you will join us for this very interesting and important look at the past.
