THE OLD NORTH STATE’S SOCIAL HISTORY: FIRST SETTLERS TO 1970 – THE WAY WE LIVED IN NORTH CAROLINA
In 1983, THE WAY WE LIVED IN NORTH CAROLINA was published in five volumes. This social history of the state from precolonial times to 1970 was the product of a joint effort by Division of Archives and History of the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources and the University of North Carolina Press. In these volumes their goal was to enhance the learning of this history by combining reading history with visiting historic places. In 2003, a single book appeared bearing the above title that combined the five volumes in a single text with five parts – Joe A. Mobley, editor, THE WAY WE LIVED IN NORTH CAROLINA. [Chapel Hill, NC: The University of North Carolina Press, 2003]: 580pp. At the above website, readers are conveniently offered an accessible social history of North Carolina online. It should afford family researchers with brief overviews of how the people of North Carolina lived over time.
