The North Carolina State Archives is a wonderful source for original county records. As part of their services, from time to time they will provide lists of items in their collections.
If you have not visited their Container List of Selected County Records page, you’ll want to be sure to do so. There are lists of records in their holdings for many NC counties – Avery, Buncombe, Cherokee, Columbus, Cumberland, Davidson, Durham, Graham, Greene, Harnett, Haywood, Hyde, Jackson, Mecklenburg, Lenoir, Pamlico, Polk, Richmond, Rowan, Stokes, Swain, Washington, & Wilkes
