Journal of Rockingham County History and Genealogy 1976-1978

The Rockingham County Historical Society in Wentworth, NC, publishes the Journal of Rockingham County History and Genealogy twice a year, in April and October. This journal includes articles about the history and genealogical resources of Rockingham County, North Carolina, and the surrounding areas. The historical articles are of high quality and extensively researched. This book covers the first three years of publication, 1976-1978. A full index can be found at the end of each individual volume.

The journal is of particular significance as it contains genealogical articles featuring unpublished primary sources relevant to Rockingham County, such as local record abstracts and edited versions of diaries, letters, or church records. However, submissions of papers focusing on family history were not accepted.
