Accessions at the NC State Archives
The North Carolina State Archives provides a bimonthly list of recent accessions. These lists only include accessions with a genealogical interest. For a complete listing please see the Archives website at http://archives.ncdcr.gov. Please be aware that not all of these records are currently available for research. Cards will be placed in the card catalog or entries made in the appropriate finding aids when these items have been arranged and are ready for research.
Codes that appear at the end of certain entries:
ATM: a listing has been accessioned previously, but is being accessioned again because either new material has been added or there has been a change in accessioning data.
FRO: changes have occurred in the accessioning record only.
WRA: the collection is housed at the Western Regional Archives in Asheville.
OBHC: the item is maintained in the Outer Banks History Center in Manteo.
