New About Search Data Military Links Query Home

Welcome to the Wilkes County, NCGenWeb site, a volunteer genealogy website that is not associated with the County government.  We are Ginger Christmas- Beattie,  your host, and Deloris Williams, temporary assistant host. We are dedicated to helping researchers learn more about their Wilkes Co., NC ancestors.  While we are the current hosts, this site really does belong to each and every contributor since  without them it would be impossible. We welcome contributions from anyone who might have data to share.  We are always looking for new original sources whether it be books no longer subject to copyright or even later books if the permission of the copyright holder can be obtained. We welcome any early photos, Wills, Deeds, letters or other transcribed genealogical materials.  In short, anything a researcher might find useful.  For those still living in the area you can always visit the courthouse but for others across the country, this may be their only link to researching their ancestors.  Please visit our Data Index page to see what we currently have, and then doing a Search from the above tab may bring up something you are looking for.

Thanks to our late beloved friend, Nola Duffy, for all of her work on this and other websites. Her love and dedication to the NCGenWeb will always be remembered.
