Just a quick note… Found this on the NC Genealogy Facebook page and felt it was worth sharing here. It also has won an award from the North Carolina Genealogical Society for Excellence in Web Presence. Kudos to David M. McCorkle and his website.
Here is a snippet from the NC Land Grant Website (NCLandGrants.com) and what he has is on his website.
* Searchable data for 216,000 land grants including names, dates and locations for years 1663 through 1960.
* Included in the total are 10,000 grants issued by North Carolina in what is now Tennessee
* Images of all 205 existing Land Patent Books with complete metes and bounds for each patent
* Images of loose documents (surveys, warrants, receipts) for Caswell, Mecklenburg, Orange, Person, Wake, and Wilkes Counties”
