North Carolina Family Records Online

The State Library and the State Archives of North Carolina have been working together to digitize family history materials from their holdings. Currently available are almost 1500 Bible records from the 18th through the 20th centuries, indexed marriage and death announcements from five NC newspapers from 1799-1893, and photographs of the Raleigh Hebrew Cemetery and the Hebrew section of the Historic Oakwood Cemetery in Raleigh. To access these great resources and for more information about this project visit their website.

Donate a copy of your family Bible records

The State Archives is looking for family Bible records that include the name of at least one person who was born or lived in North Carolina AND at least one birth or death dating to 1913 or before. If the information in your family Bible meets these criteria simply scan or photocopy the title and copyright pages and the pages containing the family records and send them to the address below. Typing any handwritten information and including it with the scans or photocopies will help to ensure that names are spelled correctly. If you have any questions call 919-807-7310 or email them at
