Loose Estates Records Index Update Feb 2015

Five new counties have been added - Hyde, Scotland, Stanly, Swain, and Surry - with 8144 new names added to the Surname Decedent Index, for a current total of 118,953 names.
The Decedent Index page has also been redesigned. All surnames beginning with the same letter will be found in the same searchable pdf file.

Journal Index Update Feb 2015

The online NCGS Journal index has been updated. Almost 23,000 more Names and over 4500 Places have been added. The structure of the page has changed again - each document is all-inclusive of the names beginning with that letter (i.e., all the "A"s in one file, etc.). These are still individual pdf files that will open in a new browser window, and still searchable. These are obviously much longer lists, but researchers should have no trouble opening them in a browser.

To navigate to these indexes, look under Publications>NCGS Journal, and click on NCGS Journal Index.

Journal Indexing Project Update - Nov 2014

Update - 13 Nov 2014: over 10,000 more Names and over 2,000 Places have been added. The structure of how these indexes are accessed has been changed, using a table format rather than a page with a list of downloadable documents. Each entry in the table will open a pdf file in a new browser window. It is hoped this will make it less cumbersome for researchers. (The previous method is still available on the main Publications page.)

Access the online index from the main menu, under Publications > NCGS Journal > NCGS Journal Index. Currently, the total is 40,342 Name entries and 5,154 Place entries.

Latest Publications

Both the latest NCGS News and the NCGS Journal (Feb 2015) are now available online, in the Publications section. The NCGS Journal is only available to members, after logging in.

NCGS Journal - November 2014

The latest issue of the NCGS Journal (Vol. 40, No. 4) is now available. Remember, you must be logged in as a member to access it. The print edition should be mailed out early in November.
