The North Carolina Genealogical Society is a membership organization dedicated to preserving and promoting genealogical studies in North Carolina. Founded in 1974, the NCGS provides members and interested researchers with a variety of genealogical resources. Please read our Code of Ethics. As a non-profit organization, we appreciate all gifts and contributions.
As an aid to researchers, a new project is underway to index the names found in the "North Carolina Estate Files, 1663-1978".
These can be found by clicking on the Loose Estates Index tab, under the Resources tab on the main menu bar.
The master name index is statewide, and each county index provides a list of all names found in that county.
Four more counties have just been added, for a grand total (so far) of 24 counties and 60,770 names.
The latest NCGS Journal, Vol. XLI No. 2, is now available in the Member's section of the website. Hardcopy should mail out within the next two weeks.
Watch this website and the September edition of the NCGS News for release date for the free viewing of the next NCGS webinar.
SOON TO COME:

We recently experienced an issue with DNS name servers pointing incorrectly, which in effect meant the addressing to our site was broken. The problem was identified and corrected, and we're back.
We apologize for any inconvenience.
This has also affected our email - it may take a few days before we are able to receive/respond to any email sent to the NCGS Administrator or the Webmaster.
UPDATE: 22 Jun 2014 - Our email appears to be functioning normally, once again.
