Welcome to the Wilkes County, NCGenWeb site, a volunteer genealogy website that is not associated with the County government. We are
Beattie, your host, and Deloris Williams,
temporary assistant host. We are dedicated to
helping researchers learn more about their Wilkes Co., NC ancestors.
While we are the current hosts, this site really does belong to each
and every contributor since without them it would be impossible. We
contributions from anyone who might have data to share. We are
always looking for new original sources whether it be books no
longer subject to copyright or even later books if the permission of
the copyright holder can be obtained. We welcome any early photos, Wills, Deeds, letters or other transcribed genealogical materials.
In short, anything a researcher might find useful. For those
still living in the area you can always visit the courthouse but for
others across the country, this may be their only link to
researching their ancestors. Please visit our Data Index page to see what we currently have, and then doing
a Search from the above tab may bring up something you are looking for.

School that was located near where she and her siblings grew up in
the Cranberry Community. Contributed by her niece, Wanda Priddy.
Thanks to our late beloved friend, Nola Duffy, for all of her work on
this and other websites. Her love and dedication to the NCGenWeb
will always be remembered.
