Indexes

The Genealogical Society of Iredell County has a vast collection of copies and scans from original documents housed at the State Archives. These copies have been collected over the years and cover a wide variety of types of records including birth, marriage, death, and land records. While it is a long-term goal of the society to digitize this content, indexes have been created for these collections so that researchers know what is available at the library. Scanned copies can be requested to the library through the Local History Request Form.


Land Grants

Land Grants for Iredell and Rowan Counties 1753-1793

This is a database listing the early Granville land grants for Iredell and Rowan counties. Iredell formed out of Rowan County in 1788, so many land grant requests were originally documented in Rowan but were issued in Iredell. The scanned copies of these documents are available at the library and are filed as they are listed here in the Genealogical Society Room.
