Kinston Free Press Abstracts Update – June 2011

This weekend I’ve added additional newspaper extracts from the Kinston Free Press to the NC People in the Papers database. You can access a list of names in the database so far here.

This update includes items from the June 18 – June 30 1906 issues and added more than 300 names to the database.  Remember, this is not a complete index; just items I think have greater genealogical value, in addition to all vitals of local and residents of nearby counties.

Lenoir county deaths reported in these issues include:

Marriages added with this update include:

The total number of names in the NC People in the Papers database associated with Lenoir County is now up to 377.

Site Reorganization

Just a quick notice to let you know that I have reorganized the site.  Changes were made to allow me to more efficiently add new information.  As a result, most pages have moved and you will likely encounter broken links.  Don’t despair though! All of the content is still here – just moved around.

Please start from the RECORDS page to locate what you’re looking for.

To keep up with future announcements please subscribe to the RSS feed or visit us often!

Finding Wills & Estate Records

Over the weekend I received a query from a Lenoir County researcher on how to find estate records from someone who died around 1839.  I then realized that on this site, the only information provided on wills was a link to the Lenoir County NCGenWeb Archives listing of user-submitted wills.   While this is a good start, there are additional resources to check if you’re looking for probate records so I’ve added a new page on the site listing these resources.

Most of the links are to microfilm records that are available from the North Carolina State Archives and the Family History Library.  Check out the new page for more info!

New Deed Added

Thanks to contributor Doug Rador, a new deed has been added to the site.  Doug acquired this deed from an online auction and will eventually donate it to the NC State Archives.   The deed registers a land transaction between George WHITFIELD and Jesse LASSITER, dated March of 1845.  Check it out!

Lenoir County College Students

In a new database added to the NCGenWeb you will find listings of students from North Carolina colleges who are from Lenoir County.  As of this writing there are 140+ names on the list, but this is sure to grow as I continue to add to the database.

You can find the list of students here.  Surnames include Bell, Churchill, Daughety, Davis, Fields, Harper, Howard, Moseley, Pittman, Rouse and more.

The students listed are mostly seniors who graduated about 1930 and earlier.  In the upcoming months additional entries will be added.  A link to this resource has been added to the Education page.  Enjoy!
