RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolinians can get help investigating their roots during the Family History Fair in downtown Raleigh.

The event is scheduled for Saturday at the Department of Cultural Resources. Presentations will focus on specific records that are important sources of information for family researchers and genealogists.

Experts will discuss royal and proprietary land grants and how to use road, bridge and ferry records to search family histories.

The fair is sponsored by the State Archives, the State Library and Friends of the Archives. Twenty-five vendors will be on hand, including the Triangle Jewish Genealogical Society and the Triangle chapter of the Afro-American Genealogical and Historical Society.
