Since 1838, North Carolina has had a public school system. Each county had a board of superintendents or a board of education. School records may be in the county office of the board of education; the office of the register of deeds; the clerk of the superior court; or at the North Carolina State Archives. School records such as school censuses, and pupil records, may list parents and their children, with the ages of the children. Colleges and universities often have records with biographical information about their alumni. The Family History Library has many North Carolina school records, some dating from the 1860s. The records may continue as late as the 1970s.
