The North Carolina Room will reopen at 8 AM on Monday, November 17, 2014.

We will be located on the second floor of the Forsyth County Government Center, next to the Register of Deeds office, at 201 North Chestnut Street.

Our new hours will be radically different from what they were before. NO night hours. NO weekend hours.

We will be open from 8 AM to 5 PM, Monday through Friday. Professional genealogical assistance will be available from 10 AM to 4 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays, and 11 AM to 5 PM on Fridays.

Since we will be in a part of the city that some may be unfamiliar with, we want to make it easy for you to find us.

Here is a general map showing the location of the Forsyth County Government Center:

Once you have arrived at Chestnut Street, you can find the parking entrance about halfway between Second and Third Streets:


From there, you can enter the Government Center through the double doors at the south end of the parking deck. There are two sets of double doors…both can be opened by pushbutton by those using wheelchairs.

We have arranged for free parking, but you will have to go to the Information Services / Computer Bridge office to obtain a parking pass, then go back to your car and put the pass on the dashboard. Then you can return and use the escalator or the elevators to reach the NC Room:


When leaving the NC Room, you can take the escalator or the elevators back to the lobby. If using the elevators, press 1 for the lobby.

We hope that all of our our long term patrons and many new ones will come to visit soon.
