Miscellaneous Records at the North Carolina State Archives

While searching the North Carolina State Archives Catalogs, I often come across lists of records containing valuable information about residents in the various Counties.  I am posting those with Granville County names which will enable researchers to know where to find these records to explore further while visiting the Archives, or to use when ordering records from the Archives. I am including the catalog info to help locate and identify the records.  Any additional records I find will be added to this page from time to time, so check back regularly.
