A growing list of Eastern North Carolina counties now have their deeds and other records online. From now on links to all of the following Register of Deeds databases can be found via the Research Databases link in the top menu of this site.

Interestingly, some counties also have Slave and Co-Habitation Records, as well as detailed land grant plats.

Happy searching! 😀
