North Carolina Directories

If you ask me, I think we have one of the best overall digitization programs ever.  The North Carolina Digital Heritage Center is building a robust collection of digital items – photos, yearbooks, scrapbooks and more.  The latest addition is their City Directories collection.

They are still continually adding to the site, so you will want to check often.  You can browse by the city, by the county, or by the date of the directory.  Directories are valuable sources of genealogical information so you will definitely wish to take a look.  So far, the counties with the largest collections of directories are Buncombe, Forsyth, Wake, New Hanover and Durham.  If you have family that you’ve been looking for try here.
