Even with all the benefits an online genealogy
service can provide, most researchers are still
hesitant to subscribe because it is a decision
filled with questions and uncertainty about trust
and credibility. Trust is an important concept
whenever you provide any information to any
commercial entity. Trust is often more difficult
to earn for companies that do online business.
Some considerations include how your information
will be used and the business model of the company
receiving your information. At OneGreatFamily, we
build a foundation of trust by working and

When I first began my teaching career, I had
reached the lesson on using church records as a
genealogical source. I was covering many different
denominations, what type of records they kept,
where the repositories for those records were etc,
when a student raised his hand. "My ancestors were
Moravian, are you going to cover Moravian
records?" he asked. I smiled confidently and said,
"You bet! Next class."
I had never heard of the Moravians!! But I
promise you I knew quite a bit about them before
the class met again!
Moravia is a region in Czchecoslovakia and the
Moravian Church is a protestant denomination
formed in Bohemia in 1457. They were called "Unity
of Brethren". In 1722 the church was reorganized
and became known as the Moravian Church.
Moravians moved to Pennsylvania in the early
1740's. The Moravians later purchased 10,000 acres
of land in North Carolina and more Moravians began
immigrating to this area in 1753.
Moravian church records are very similar to the
records kept by the Quakers, which we covered in
last week’s issue of this newsletter. Excellent
records are kept of birth, marriage and death.
There are two headquarters for the Moravian
Church, one for the North and one for the South.
The North is at the Moravian Historical Society in
Bethlehem, Pennsylvania and the South at The
Moravian Church in North Carolina 224 S. Cherry
St., Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
