New About Search Data Deeds Families Wills Links Query Home


At long last the book is now done but certainly not finished or polished.  I promised the book would be online today (01/21/2010) and so it is.  We have posted Chapters I -IX but have not yet posted the introduction or the copies of the original document images at the end of the book but they will be online within a couple of days.  The Index alone runs to 100 pages and I will not be transcribing it at present but fortunately, the book will be completely indexed by the search engine before the end of this evening. In the meantime, I have linked all the chapters I - IX.  While working on this today, I also noticed that some of the images are missing although I know that both Ginger and I have them.  Since the links are on each page, I imagine Ginger just needs to get the remainder to me and then the broken links to the missing images will work.


We would like to thank the family of the author for giving us permission to make this book available to the Warren Co., North Carolina researchers.  His son shared his only copy with me some time ago in order that we could scan each page.Sadly, it would not OCR so each page has been typed by hand.    We would also like to thank all  the researchers who volunteered to help type this 1000 page book.  Bittany Trexler, a graduating senior from Granville Co. spent much of one summer typing pages in her spare time and finally Ginger Beattie Christmas finished the typing and put it together.  If it does not look professional now, it is because of my personal difficulty porting pages done in MSW to HTML but I will not stop until each page appears as it should.  Again, only the links to the chapters are currently linked.


Note: A word of caution, from D.Williams, NCGenWeb Project. While this book remains a good source of information for many HARRIS lines, some of the earliest lines have been proven to be incorrect by newer research. As with any source used in research, it is advised that you use multiple sources to prove the veracity of any info found in a book, since errors can be made at any point in time.
