WONDERFUL NEWS ABOUT DIGITIZED NEWSPAPERS AND OBITUARIES:
The Davie County Public Library has been working to get digitized newspapers and obituaries online. The work has not been totally completed, but you’ll be able to find some very helpful material at http://www.daviecountync.gov/440/Genealogy-Local-History.
- NEWSPAPER FILES: If you click on the words “Newspaper Files from Davie County” on this site, you will be able to read many newspapers from Davie. They are also searchable. At the very top of the page that lists the years, type in a name that you would like to research. Or, you can choose a date to be able to browse that newspaper. Again, they’re not totally finished with uploading everything.
- OBITUARIES: at the Website: http://www.daviecountync.gov/440/Genealogy-Local-History, click on Obituaries from Davie County. You can also search for a name at the top of the screen. If a year or name doesn’t appear, it probably means that it hasn’t been uploaded yet.
- FOLD3: Notice also at http://www.daviecountync.gov/440/Genealogy-Local-History, that you can use Fold3 at your own computer at home if you have a Davie County Public Library card. This Website has predominantly military records, but also includes other records. The name refers to the way that the US flag is folded.
Let me hear from you.
