North Carolina Genealogy Records

Many people today are interested in learning more about their past and their ancestors. As a result Genealogy is one of the most common terms in search engines on the World Wide Web. For those who are new to the world of Genealogy, there are many ways one can find information regarding their ancestors. Some of the most common forms of public records used for genealogy are: For Birth Records The North Carolina Vital Records Office maintains records that date back to 1913 when first began to issue birth certificates. For Death Records North Carolina death records are maintained by the state's Vital Records Office. This institution has death records that date back to 1930. Earlier records (dating back to 1909) may also be available but only through the North Carolina State Archives. North Carolina law [NCGS 130A-93(c)] renders certified copies of records strictly confidential but does allow for researchers to access non-official versions of many public records. For Obituaries Locating the North Carolina obituaries you are searching for is easier than you may think. This is one of the best organized states in the union, and they have almost a dozen different online resources you can look to for the information you are after. You can begin your search with the website for the Hickory Public Library. They feature information on obits dating from 1915 all the way up to the 21st century. Most of the listings published here come from The Hickory Daily Record newspaper. The Columbus County Library also has a number of old listings online. These listings start in 1924 and go right up to present day and come from published obits in the local county newspaper. The Fayetteville Observer newspaper has their own online archive that you can access. This archive specializes in listings from 1988 to today. The Greensboro Public Library is also a fantastic resource for anyone looking for older listings. They feature listings from as far back as 1826, so if you are looking for especially old listings, this is where you want to start your search. Finding accurate and free North Carolina obituary records is easy thanks to the power of the Internet. For Marriages The North Carolina Vital Records Office maintains records for the state and has a database of marriage records that dates back to 1962. Older records may also be available through each county's Register of Deeds. North Carolina law [NCGS 130A-93(c)] dictates that vital records are available to the public only as unofficial copies.
