The minutes of the previous meeting were approved and accepted as read. There was no treasurer’s report due to absence of treasurer.
Mary Disharoon presented no newsletters or journals. She brought a supply of Deed Book 1 for purchase by members. We’ve had requests for the book from several states.
Mary reported that Gail Swain, President of Tri-County Genealogical Society in Bayboro invited us to attend their monthly meeting at 6:45pm on the third Tuesday of each month at the Pamlico County Library in Bayboro.
The slate for officers for 2004 was presented. There were no nominations from the floor. Albert Everson moved, Russell seconded to accept the slate as presented. Those present voted “yes”.

Ann appointed Russell Tyson to chair a committee to begin the process of pricing microfilm readers, possibly to utilize the funds received from John’s memorial. Albert Everson was appointed to serve with him.
Ann mentioned Deed Book 1 is selling well. Chris Oakley will take a supply with her to the NCGS meeting on Saturday, November 8.
Russell will also look into obtaining a different place for our fall dinner meeting with the thought to have it earlier in the year – September 25 or October 2.
Jean Bowen was appointed chairman of the calendar committee to replace John. She appointed Vernetta to assist her. Louis Van Camp is also on the committee.
Van Camp’s third book on Washington and Beaufort County is now available at Bookhaven in Belhaven; Sunflower Books and Hall Mark in Washington; Terry’s Place in Chocowinity; Country Classics at Douglas Cross Roads; Pirates’ Treasure in Bath, and at his home.
