North Carolina Genealogy and History

North Carolina Genealogy is being developed as a genealogical and historical resource for your personal use. While the original thought was to provide this website as a resource for finding genealogy and historical data concerning North Carolina on the web, we have begun adding specific data to this site for your personal use.

In an attempt to further expand our offerings and refine your search, we have begun the creation of county websites. Those county sites can be found in the list of links to the right.

The search on the right side will search all of the North Carolina Genealogy website, but will not search the data linked to from our offsite data pages.
