The Volunteers - The Contributions

    This page is dedicated to all of the wonderful transcribers and contributors that we have for the Duplin NCGenWeb site.

    They have each worked tirelessly to transcribe any and all records that are sent in, or they have worked very hard at finding information on their families and have been generous enough to share it with everyone.

    I would like to give a huge THANK YOU to each and every one of you!

    If I have omitted someone that should be on this list PLEASE let me know so that I can add them in. I don't want anyone forgotten for their contributions in making this the best site to do Duplin County Research.


    John Evans ~ John has been very generous in contributing cemetery photos and 
    transcriptions as well as various corrections and other additions.
    Lillian & Pearl Houston ~ Lillian emailed me when I first took this site over and 
    offered to help me build it into a site to be proud of and she has done just 
    that!  She has gone out in the heat and cold to find all of the lost and 
    abandoned cemeteries and transcribed each one by hand and then typed 
    up and sent the transcriptions to me to add to the  site. The first cemetery 
    we worked on together was Rockfish Presbyterian Church, it was 
    huge and we didn't even get 1/2 of it finished before I had to leave and return 
    home. I couldn't get back to help finish it, but she kept at it until we got all 
    of it transcribed and online. She has also tirelessly transcribed 90% of the 
    census records we have online now. She has worked on them steadily for 5 
    years and has almost completed them. She has learned to work with templates 
    that I sent to that it would be easier for me to post the massive amounts of 
    information that she transcribes. The templates have HTML incorporated into 
    them and she was very eager to learn how to work with them to make it easier 
    on me.She has also sent in  huge files of the families she is working on to add 
    to the families pages. She also goes out and photographs the cemeteries and
    gets the GPS coordinates for each one so that everyone can find the exact 
    locations for each of them. Without Lillian and Pearl this site would not be half 
    of what it is today! We all owe them a debt of gratitude!
    Helen Peterson ~ Helen has helped with Revolutionary War and Civil War records 
    as well as anything else that I have asked or sent her way. She is also helping to 
    transcribe cemeteries from the photos on other sites as well as all she does to help 
    with Duplin.
    Nancy Prouty ~ Nancy has jumped in and transcribed any and everything that I have 
    sent her as well as learned how to work with the HTML templates so that all of the 
    massive amounts of transcriptions she does are easier for me to post. Her husband 
    Jeff even took the time to make a merging program for her to make it easier to do the 
    Jackie Purdy ~ Jackie has been a champ at doing any and everything I have sent for 
    transcriptions as well as transcribing and sending in letters, stories, family histories 
    and many other things to add to the site. She also learned to work with the HTML 
    template and is always one of the first to help me out when I have something new 
    that needs doing. Jackie has also been a sounding board for me when I get frustrated 
    when no one is sending innew information and also helps me to come up with new 
    things to add to the site.
    Katherine Ricker ~ What can I say about Katherine! She has worked tirelessly helping 
    to transcribe records and even learned to work with the HTML template. She has 
    transcribed for the Duplin site as well as the Revolutionary War and whatever else I have 
    sent her way. She has made me laugh through all of the frustrations I have
    had, and there have been plenty! She has always had a cheerful outlook on whatever 
    came our way. When controversies arise on the mailing list or even with me (I think she
    is psychic!) She is always there with an email to brighten my day and to help me trudge 
    through it.  When I have wanted to throw my hands up and yell  "Uncle, I quit!" Katherine 
    is always there to bring me back down to earth. She has really been a blessing to me.
