Eastern North Carolina Digital Library

There are hundreds of items available to search on this site. But, the one that caught my eye was the first entry when I selected Titles (browse text alphabetically by title). Abstract of North Carolina wills is a compilation of abstracts of every will found in the office of the North Carolina Secretary of State. The abstracts in the images from this book published in 1910 gives the name of the testator; place of residence; and names of wife, children, legatees, witnesses, and probate officer; names of plantations; and "remarkable items or noteworthy passages" in the wills.
For anyone with NC Roots, this is a must visit and it's free.
