About the Data

This data set is made up of the indexed page images from eight books originally published by the Genealogical Publishing Company. Comprehensive in its coverage of early North Carolina, this unique collection of marriage records, death records, land records, historical sketches, and biographies references approximately 200,000 individuals. While the books focus on North Carolina genealogy and history, you'll often find records of South Carolina ancestors.

Here, biographical sketches and personal recollections combine with local histories to produce an overview of North Carolina's early settlers. Among the unique resources collected here, you'll find eleven volumes of the North Carolina Historical and Genealogical Register. In nearly 2,000 pages, these volumes represent the most comprehensive collection of source records ever collected for North Carolina's Old Albermarle region. Other books include biographical sketches of early settlers and prominent families as well as a comprehensive collection of marriage and death records transcribed from the Raleigh Register and North Carolina State Gazette.

While the information that you'll learn from this data set varies, you can often learn:

  • Dates and details of vital events;
  • Names and ages of family members;
  • Personal characteristics;
  • Occupation;
  • Information on military service (place of service, rank, etc.);
  • Information on land held;
  • Information on immigration.
