NCGS Featured Publication

This is the updated, revised second edition of the book that set the standard for state research guides with its award-winning 1st Edition published in 1980. It’s not just how to do North Carolina genealogy, it’s how to do genealogy period! (Hardback, 620 pages)

Tools of the Trade

Ansonville, which was the county seat of Anson County at the time, suffered a fire on 2 April 1868. While most of the probate records and deeds survived, many of the earliest records did not, so records before 1790 may be spotty.
