I’m happy to announce the availability of DigitalNC.org, the online home for materials published by the North Carolina Digital Heritage Center. The site is sure to be a treasure-trove of North Caroliniana and is a must-visit for regular readers of North Carolina Miscellany.
There are several projects available on the site now, including North Carolina College and University Yearbooks, Images of North Carolina, Digital Davie, Durham Urban Renewal Records, and Wilson County’s Greatest Generation: The Memories of the World War II Veterans of Wilson County. Visit often, as new materials are being added to all of these collections on a regular basis.
