The State Library and State Archives partnership continues, as 249 new family Bible records have been added to the NC Family Records Online collection. This brings the total number of database records to 731.

If your family name starts with “A”-”E,” be sure to search for it in the database, as the State Archives has completed the scanning and transcription of the first portion of their collection.

Those with family names that start with letters “F” or later should not despair, as a large sampling of names from the rest of the alphabet were made available as part of the pilot project. The collection will continue to grow on a bimonthly basis until the 2,200+ records in the State Archives holdings are made full-text searchable through this online resource.

Also added recently by the State Library is a copy of a sketch of the New Garden Quaker Community (Guilford County), as it appeared in March of 1781.
