Guide to Research Materials in the North Carolina State Archives: County Records

Published by the North Carolina Division of Archives and History, part of the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources, the Guide to Research Materials in the North Carolina State Archives: County Records “describes more than 9,000 bound volumes and 21,000 boxes of loose records, as well as over 24,000 reels of microfilm, all of which are available to researchers in the State Archives”. Most of these county records were transferred to the Division by the offices of clerks of superior court and registers of deeds at the 100 counties in North Carolina, and consist  of bonds, censuses, corporations and partnerships, court records, elections, estates, land, marriage and vital statistics, military and pension records, records of officials, roads and bridges, schools, tax and fiscal records, and wills. Now in the State Publications Collection, this wonderful guide is easy to access, save, and print, perfect for review at home before visiting the North Carolina State Archives in Raleigh. Access this guide at http://digital.ncdcr.gov/cdm4/document.php?CISOROOT=/p249901coll22&CISOPTR=20251&REC=6.
