I discovered on the North Carolina Genealogical Society website that the NC Loose Estates Records indexing project was just updated! According to the website there are now 3,371,321 images that are indexed and available for free. To see what all the excitement is about go to the Family Search site and check it out.
North Carolina counties have been indexed by decedent, in part or in whole! The good news is that sixty-eight out of one hundred counties have been indexed with 138,899 individual estates that are indexed!
The bad news is that only sixty-eight out of one hundred counties have been indexed. If you are interested in volunteering all you need is a computer and Internet access. They provide the software along with a tutorial through a video. Also a Wiki page has been created to answer any questions.
