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.
This Web site is undergoing maintenance and repairs and will go off-line at 10:00 p.m. on Saturday, 10 January 2014 and will resume operation at 6:00 a.m. on Sunday, 12 January 2014. We are apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

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 NC Loose Estates Records indexing project was just updated! There are now 3,371,321 images that are indexed and freely available!
As of January 29th, 68 out of 100 North Carolina counties have been indexed by decedent, in part or in whole! Currently, there are 138,899 individual estates that are indexed!

Don't see your county of interest? Please consider joining as a volunteer indexer! All you need is a computer and internet access. The software is provided, and a video tutorial and Wiki page have been created to answer any questions. Will you donate a little of your time?
