Subject: New Gates GenWeb page

Barbara McMahon, county Coordinator for the GenWeb Project, had asked if I
could take on the Gates County GenWeb site since she was having a lot of
things that have been keeping her too busy to devote a great deal of time to
the site. I agreed, so I have redesigned and updated the page, added some of
the content from the Gates Cemetery Survey Site, and added some new links.
The Gates Cemetery Survey will continue as a separate entity, but most of
the records other than cemetery transcriptions have been transferred to the
GenWeb site. They will still be accessible from the GCCS, and I intend to
make the two sites work together on both fronts to create a quality resource
link for those seeking ancestors in Gates County.
The new page for the Gates County GenWeb is:
I have also added more obituaries as well which can now be accessed through
both sites. I hope to make this page one of the best county pages on the NC
GenWeb Project, with high quality content, informative links, and
interesting tidbits about the history of the county. If anyone has any
records on hand that would help others in their search as well, consider
contributing copies to this ongoing project. We really need volunteers on
all fronts, from lookups to link or document submissions.
Thanks to all of you for your past submissions and especially to Barbara
McMahon for running the Gates site for so many years.
Cheers to all,
