14 Biennial Report of the 


In the State Library one will find one of the most complete genealogical 
collections to be found in the south. The material is always available to 
the researchers. The staff gladly assists the patrons in every way possible, 
but is too small to undertake private researches. We however recom- 
mend to our patrons some competent genealogist who will gladly do the 
work for them at a reasonable price. 

The original marriage bonds, deedsr wiHs, etc., from the various counties 
are to be found in the Department of the Historical Commission. 

The Land grants in the Secretary of State's Office are housed in the- 
same building with the library and here are to be found the land granta 
from the various counties of North Carolina^
