Re: North Carolina Birth Records at Ancestry
In Response To: Re: North Carolina Birth Records at Ancestry ()
I had no luck either. I think I may be able to explain why:
1. Mary Mose Honeycutt, borne 1860, North Carolina. Mary was born before the end of the Civil War, and unless she was a Free Person of Color or unless North Carolina registered Slave births the way Virginia did, then there won't be a record for her. The same goes for Sandy Curlee, borne 1864, North Carolina.
2. All of the following were born in South Carolina and won't be in the North Carolina Database. You might be able to find them as parents in North Carolina though. Did they move to North Carolina? Try putting in the names of their children or just their last names.
Theodore Belk, borne 1900, South Carolina Maggire Belk, borne 1888, Lancaster, SC
3. Jack Honeycutt, borne 1892, Sandy Ridge, Union County, NC. I did come across a large number of Jack Honeycutt's born in North Carolina. I also looked for John Honeycutt and got some hits. You'll have to look at each one to see which one might be your ancestor. Keep in mind that the database sometimes lists a county and sometimes doesn't. Sometimes, in the County field it lists a number or a city. Also the list says Union County didn't start listing borths until 1913, although in other counties I have found relatives who were listed before the official start date.
