Do you know that many relevant records are “hidden” in paperwork that is found in state-level collections? The Secretary of State Records, 1663-1985, is one such collection. Many people are familiar with some of the records of the Land Office (Colonial and State), 1693-1959, as we’ve researched land warrants, entries, patents, plats, grants, the Glasgow land fraud, and more in pursuit of our ancestors and their land. We’ll briefly discuss land records and the breadth of what is to be found beyond the land records most frequently consulted. We’ll then delve into the other gems found in this collection, including and not limited to: Correspondence concerning Revolutionary War Veterans and Pensioners (1818-1859), Automobile Licenses (1909-1918), Atlantic and N.C.R.R. Employees (1855-1863), Out-of-State Insurance Companies and Their Agents (1891-8), Shellfish Franchises (1858+), Bonds of County Officials (1741-1848), Coroners Inquests (1738-1775), Voter Registration, Poll Books & More (1867-1908), Colonial Probate records, Committee of Safety Records (1774-1776), and more juicy gems than we’ll have time to discuss in detail!
