HELLO - WELCOME!
My name is LaRae Halsey-Brooks, and my daughter,
Eireann Brooks, and I are the County Co-Coordinators
for the Surry County NCGenWeb Project.
If you would like to contribute Biographical Sketches of your
Surry County families to this website, please let us know.
We will be happy to create a special page for your material
and include any photographs, scanned documents,
or other items you'd like to add to the page.
We also would like a list of your Surry County Surnames
with dates and townships. We'll include a link back
so others researching your families can contact you.
I'll start the page with my own families, but hope you will
each add your own surnames to the new page.
If you live in or near Surry County and would like to
take digital photographs of cemeteries and tombstones,
please let us know.
If you have access to existing cemetery transcriptions,
land records, tax rolls, school class rosters/photos, etc.,
we would be most grateful for any and all submissions.
If you are interested in hosting another county
in North Carolina for the NCGenWeb Project,
please visit the Adoptable Counties page.
Please check back from time to time
as we add more information to the page!
LaRae & Eireann
