Thanks to a multi-year effort of several collaborators and the permission of the United States Marine Corps, a new website is available for reviewing primary documentation for the many families displaced by the building of Camp Lejune.
Titled MarineBase Homes – the site is a large virtual gallery of documents & photos of records related to the 1941 purchases. This is an incredible resource everyone! I just can’t say it strongly enough!

The documents are organized by 15 geographical areas. The areas and their land owners were published in the 1983 publication by the Onslow County Genealogical Society, The Heritage of Onslow County. I have started to place the maps and owner lists online and in the next few weeks will link each one to their documentation as I’m able to. So… check back for updates!
The Former Landowners of Camp Lejune are to be congratulated for this massive undertaking.
