Wilkes Genealogy and History

Wilkes Genealogy Room Books and Materials

This is not an exhaustive list. These are just a few links from our library search. Cataloging material is a never-ending process. New material comes in daily and there is much that is not catalogued, like donated family files that are in the file cabinets.

At a later date, we will start digitizing some of the papers in our Genealogy Room to begin making them available online for our members.

The Category links below will open to what have catalogued and available in our Genealogy Room.

It is always best to call or go to the Wilkes County library if you are looking for a specific Wilkes related family or subject.

If you are a member of the Wilkes Genealogical Society, you may contact us to see if we can arrange for a volunteer to look up information for you. With the technology literally in hand, we can take a cellphone photo of a page or two and email it to you. Anything that is out of copyright can be scanned and sent to you in PDF format for an arranged fee, depending on the number of pages.
