Welcome to the NCGenWeb Digital Bookshelf

The purpose of this site is to provide as a directory for NC-related e-texts/documents that may be useful for your family history & genealogical research.  Items listed on the site are primarily available via the Internet Archive, though other sources may be included.

Links are organized by county.   You will find that some of these texts will be linked from the individual county pages, but a central location can also prove useful for overall discovery.

Some items to know as you navigate:

  • items are organized by major topics (see  sidebar)
  • on each topic page, items are organized by those most relevant across the state, followed by categorization at the county level
  • sometimes, an e-document will be listed in more than one category
  • if you know of something we’ve missed – tell us!
