Courting North Carolina: The Courts of the Tarheel State – Part 1 Webinar Replay

Statesville Old U.S Court House and Post Office

Judy G. Russell, JD, CG, CGL

Our North Carolina ancestors left a treasure trove of records in the courts of their time. Finding the right court and the right records can be a challenge, yet understanding the records of the courts closest to the average citizen is a skill that’s crucial to finding clues to family history in the Tarheel State. In part 1, we’ll examine colonial and early statehood records. (Part 2 will cover post-1868 state records and the records of North Carolina’s federal courts.)
