NCGS Journal Index - Place Names

Index of Geographical Place Names from the NCGS Journal.

This is an ongoing process, barely in its infancy. These documents will continue to grow as more Journal indexes are transcribed.

Places are entered exactly as in the original printed indexes. For example, "Buckhoms Creek, Orange Co., NC" is listed just so - it will not be found in the "O" list under Orange County. We hope to eventually expand our online index to include separate lists for individual counties in North Carolina and individual states. However, as these files are searchable, you will be able to do a search for "Orange", for example, in any document. There are a few entries that don't fall neatly in an alphabetical listing, like those that begin with quotation marks or numbers. For example, the 2nd Hospital in Petersburg, VA. These will be found in the file named "Other".

Each list will open in a new browser tab, without affecting the tab currently open to the NCGS website.

If any broken or incorrect links are encountered, please bring it to the attention of the Webmaster.

The lists are alphabetical, but 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.

For the time being, we are making available the comprehensive Places list. The list is relatively small at this point, but will greatly increase in size as the project progresses. At some time in the future, we may have to remove the list if its size starts affecting performance. Meanwhile, you may click on this link, Comprehensive Places List, to access the searchable PDF file. This document currently has 270 pages.
