If you have ancestors in North Carolina who were landowners and may have gotten their land through a land grant, this site may be for you.
It offers searchable data for 216 thousand land grants for the years 1663 through 1960. Included in those numbers are 10 thousand grants issued by North Carolina in what is not Tennessee.
As you get into the site and wish to see more than just top level information, you are asked to answer a question (the answer is actually given to you; the purpose is to weed out spammers), and then complete a guest registration.
