The State Library of North Carolina and the State Archives of North Carolina has a website, North Carolina Family Records Online, with a Bible Records collection online. Records can be searched by time period, topic, or format, and date back to the Colonial Period, 1600-1763.

“The Bible records found in North Carolina Family Records Online come from the State Archives of North Carolina’s 2500+ holdings. North Carolina did not officially record births and deaths until late in 1913. The Bible Records Collection was begun to complement and supplement the official vital records recorded by the state. Entries in the Bibles typically record births, deaths, and marriages covering 200 years or more, usually beginning in the early to mid-1700s and continuing through to the mid-1900s. Many records also include references to other topics, such as soldiers who served in different wars.”

“The North Carolina Digital Collections contain over 90,000 historic and recent photographs, state government publications, manuscripts, and other resources on topics related to North Carolina. The Collections are free and full-text searchable, and bring together content from the State Archives of North Carolina and the State Library of North Carolina.”
