Welcome
North Carolina Counties

Part of the American History & Genealogy Project



The American History & Genealogy Project is a group of independent webmasters linking together to share historical and genealogical data with researchers online. Please join us -- there are many counties and topics to be explored! Our most pressing need in North Carolina right now is someone to adopt each county. If you would like to become a volunteer county coordinator, or have information or data you would like to donate, please contact the State Coordinator for North Carolina AHGP or click on the adopt me link for the county.
If you are interested in hosting a county, city, township, etc. or sharing your own research and photos with us please contact the State Coordinator for North Carolina AHGP or click on the adopt me link for the county.
