Family History Research

In honor of Family History Month in October, the State Library has created a fabulous web page on Family History research.   It showcases the wealth of resources for North Carolina genealogical research in the State Library’s printed and digital collections.  The page also contains links to other resources in the Department of Cultural Resources, other NC state government agencies, NC academic institutions, and the federal government.  All links have been vetted by State Library staff.
