Names of Families in Camden County Genealogy, Wills, Probate Records

Camden County was formed from the northeastern part of Pasquotank County in 1777 and was named after Charles Pratt, the 1st Lord Camden, one of the opposers of the Stamp Act. The Dismal Swamp Canal runs through the southern portion of the county. Pictured is the Battle of South Mills (won by the Confederates) near the canal. Also pictured is the Milford House (Rolfe-Green-Sawyer House) built about 1746, purported to be the oldest known two-story brick house still standing in North Carolina. The brickwork is of Flemish bond design with glazed headers.

Is the Internet Forever? Will the Technology of Today Protect our Records?

Genealogy Tips by Jeannette Holland Austin

Digitization is the byword. In our quest to store data and deliver it faster, are we missing something? I mean, is the internet forever? The American electrical grid is an engineering whiz of the twentieth century, yet should that go down, what shall we do? We know that natural electricity is in the atmosphere, but we have not captured that essence. Instead, wires and plugs are used. A truer method of capturing electricity has not been invented. In this respect, everywhere that we walk, it should be available (without wires etc), as well as the internet. There is mention of the “grid,” and how a nuclear bomb can wipe out communications. And the experts are saying that the grid has grown old and is now in need of basic repairs. How about online banking where our financial transactions are revealed in great detail and passed along to such people as credit bureaus? Data breaches along the grid are occurring with great drama. Every city and state is on the grid. And, as genealogical records become readily available over the internet with the stroke of a key (if one is connected to the grid), who is to say that its expanding technology (with its bots and algorithms ) could not destroy our records in a momentous event just as Julius Caesar did when he flamed the Alexandria Library in 48 BC? So now we are encouraged to place data on the “cloud” in order to recovery it at any time or place. Really? May I inject here, that if the IRS edits your income tax returns, you better take paper copies of your records! Perhaps as we enjoy the new technological advances, we should factor in the possibility of another destroyer?
