NCGS Journal Index

Volunteers are currently transposing printed NCGS Journal indexes to a form accessible online to all visitors to our web site.
You may go directly to the indexes using the links below, but first, please read more about this project, along with some useful research tips by visiting the NCGS Journal Index Project page. You may also access the indexes from there. The method of access to the indexes on the main project page has been changed to a format that makes it easier to navigate than using the links below.

NCGS Journal Index - Ancestral Names

Index of Ancestral Names from the NCGS Journal.

This is an ongoing process. The individual documents will grow as more Journal indexes are transcribed, and the inclusive names on each document (e.g., Aaron-Alemberte) may change.

An editing note: the 'dash' between the names was lost somewhere in the translation from one system to another. This will be corrected as these lists are updated, but meanwhile, consider each pair of names to have "to" between them. E.g., "Aaron to Alemberte".

Each list will open in a new browser tab, without affecting the tab currently open to the NCGS website.

These are the same files accessible from the main project page (noted above), or from the main menu. Access through the main project page is recommended, but both options remain available.

NCGS Journal Index - Geographical Places

Index of geographical place names from the NCGS Journal.

This is an ongoing process, barely in its infancy. These documents will continue to grow as more Journal indexes are transcribed.

Places are entered exactly as in the original printed indexes. For example, "Buckhoms Creek, Orange Co., NC" is listed just so - it will not be found in the "O" list under Orange County. We hope to eventually expand our online index to include separate lists for individual counties in North Carolina and individual states.

Each list will open in a new browser tab, without affecting the tab currently open to the NCGS website.

These are the same files accessible from the main project page (noted above), or from the main menu. Access through the main project page is recommended, but both options remain available.

NCGS Member Publications

As a benefit of the NCGS, members may publish research, transcriptions, and other documents of genealogical interest on the website to share with other members of the Society.
