N.C. Historical and Genealogical Books

by John A. McGeachy

These pages have their origin in a research project to transcribe the contents of an 1850s manuscript, and to identify the author of "Cape Fear Sketches."

I often used the New Hanover County Pleas & Quarter Sessions Court Minutes while researching the authorship of "Cape Fear Sketches." A second project naturally followed to transcribe and index the New Hanover County Pleas and Quarter Sessions Minutes for the years 1809-1868.

Links to other class papers on miscellaneous topics that I wrote while enrolled in North Carolina State University's Public History program are also available.

Most recently, to aid research of my wife's Wilkes County ancestors, I am transcribing and indexing the Wilkes County Pleas & Quarter Sessions count minutes, beginning with 1798.
