With the benefit of Federal Grant money, the State Archives of North Carolina will soon be able to scan thousands of old court case files into its online database, with some records going back as far as 350 years!
“The State Archives of North Carolina is getting $140,000 toward a project designed to expand an online catalog that helps historians and other citizens know names and places within hard-to-decipher records. An improved index means they’ll know which documents they want to go read in person.
State Archivist Sarah Koonts says the documents shed light on early North Carolina society and include wills and estates and bridge and road information.”
