North Carolina Genealogy Links

Piedmont Trails is based out of North Carolina and researching this area for over thirty years has greatly enhanced my knowledge and the history of the state, counties and majority of the towns and cities. The below links are tools for you to use as you research your family lineage and history of the area. If you have any questions, comments, suggestions or queries, please use the form located on the Contact Page. If you discover a link that is not working or you would like to submit a link, just let me know. If you are researching other states, be sure to visit the United States Genealogy page as well.
