Pittsboro, NC - On Wednesday, Oct. 22, Chatham Community Library in Pittsboro will celebrate Family History Month with a special free program Religion in NC: Documenting Diversity, Enhancing Cultural Memory. The event begins at 6 pm in the Holmes Meeting Room at the library, located on the campus of Central Carolina Community College in Pittsboro.

During the program, Kenneth Woo from Duke University's Divinity School will present stories from the Religion in North Carolina Digital Collection, a collaborative digitization project led by Duke, UNC, and Wake Forest University. Religion in NC is the only digital collection of its kind, focusing on documents from the history of religion and religious bodies in a specific state.

Come hear examples of the personal and community narratives preserved in the collection, which highlights the diversity of North Carolina's cultural past and preserves its memory for the benefit of current and future generations. Attendees will also learn how the collection may assist with their own genealogical research.

For more information, or to register for this event, please call 919-545-8086 or email
