Loose Estates Records Decedent Index v2

We have changed the format of the index. All decedent surnames beginning with the same initial letter will be found in the same group (The file with all surnames beginning with "A" is opened by clicking on the "A" icon, etc. - there are currently no names beginning with "X".) Each alphabet icon below will open a searchable pdf document in a new browser window. When finished with the list, just close the window - the window with this page will still be open.

Each document will list the names in that group, with year and county. Some of these files may have hundreds of pages, but the file sizes are relatively small, so researchers should have no problem opening them. Remember to consider alternate spellings. If any broken links are encountered, please report it to the NCGS Webmaster.


Although the lists are alphabetical, you may wish to search within one of these pdf documents. In almost any browser, you can use keyboard shortcuts.


Ctrl+F (Windows, Linux, and Chrome OS) or ⌘+F (Mac) to quickly open the find bar.
Type your search term in the find bar that appears in the top-right corner of the page, and press enter to search the page. Pressing enter again will find the next occurrence of the search term, and so on.
