Holiday gifts for that Family Historian

Looking for that perfect holiday gift for the hard-to-find-gift-for relative?

Do you have a family historian on your gift list?

Have you considered a digital copy of microfilm?  The State Archives of North Carolina can digitize microfilm in our holdings and place those digital files on DVDs that can be used with most personal computers.

Tax records, county court minutes of the pleas and quarter sessions, record of wills, land grants, deed books, record of estates, and many more county records are available for digitization.  North Carolina newspapers are yet another possibility.  Any non-restricted microfilm can be scanned on request.

The basic cost of scanning a single reel is $15.00 and add $1.00 for the DVD(s).  There is also a small shipping and handling fee per order ($2.00).

Contact Chris Meekins [chris.meekins@ncdcr.gov or 919-807-7333] for more information on what holdings the Archives has for the various counties.

Order soon to receive your request in time for the holidays!
