The State Library of North Carolina and the State Archives of North Carolina have a website, North Carolina Family Records Online, with a World War II Maps and Posters collection online. Searches can be made by surname or any other filtering search.

“This collection includes World War II posters and maps from the Military Collection of the State Archives of North Carolina. …The State of North Carolina provided over 370,000 men and women to serve in all theaters of the war and in all branches of the military. Just as in the First World War, the largest number of North Carolinians served in the United States Army, but sizeable numbers served in the Navy, Army Air Corps, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard. On the home front, tens of thousands of Tar Heel civilians aided the war effort by working in vital war industries, purchasing war bonds and stamps, producing food, working in important state and federal positions, and by working in various family and troop supported activities such as the United Services Organization (USO) and the American Red Cross.”

“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.”
