All you have to do is to put your request in
writing. I have never had to prove my kinship for
records in the 1800's and farther back.
To be on the safe side, call the Pitt County
Courthouse in Greenville, N.C. and ask what
documentation you need in order to receive these
At the courthouse itself, you have only to go to
the shelves where the books of records are kept and
browse to your heart's content: birth, death,
marriage, or whatever.
The last time I was there, about a year ago, a
clerk told me, though, that from 1941 and earlier the
divorce records have been sent to Vital Statistics in
Raleigh, North Carolina.
This office is located near Jones Street. It's an
easy access off Interstate 95--even I couldn't get
lost. The parking is generous; the restaurants are
cheap; the food is fantastic; the scenery beautiful;
and the people sweet! What more could you ask for?
Again, you can call ahead to the Office of Vital
Statistics and get the scoop on what you need as
documentation in order to receive your records.
Tell them you are researching your family, and
they will assist you however they can.
Good luck to you in finding your family.
If you find any Virginia ties, I will be happy to
pick up anything you need from Vital Statistics here
in Richmond. The office is only a hop, skip, and jump
from my house.
