ONHGS General Meeting
November 9, 2015

Baylus Brooks presented an intriguing program on "The Teach Family," in reference to Blackbeard. 

His search for the truth  has extended to Jamaica, where his genealogical research has revealed that much of what was published about the pirate may have been fiction.

Read the full article in the July 2015 issue of The North Carolina Historical Review. Baylus is writing a book to follow (so far he is up to 500 pages).


 


We had a nice group of people on a stormy,
rainy night.
