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.  As part of the NCGenWeb Project, we envision this site as being of use to browse and locate texts at either the state level and/or the individual county levels.  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:

  • all is not perfect yet! we need to go through and standardize the look of some of the pages; but, we’ll get there – just bear with us
  • items are organized by major topics (see left 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!
