MARS Tutorials

MARS (Manuscript and Archives Reference System) is the online catalog for the State Archives of North Carolina and the Outer Banks History Center. It contains searchable descriptions of both archives’ holdings. MARS can be a powerful tool for historical and ancestral research projects. You can search MARS online from home or at the North Carolina State Archives. Visit the Search Room at the State Archives of North Carolina to view items described in the collection; reference archivists are on duty to assist researchers and to ensure the proper care of the collection.

To learn more about using the MARS catalog, you can read detailed instructions on our help pages or browse through the tutorials listed below. For additional assistance, click on the Contact Us link.
