    Seeking Dockery genealogy

    Tammy Kirby Newbie

      I am trying to find information about my Dockery ancestors and other lines, such as Cornwell, Rogers, Henderson, Southers, Sneed, Palmer, Kephart all from NC. Most came from NC, VA, GA.

      Thank you,

      Tammy Dockery Kirby

          Good morning,

           

          Thank you for posting your question on History Hub.

           

          The National Archives is the repository for the permanently valuable non-current records of the Federal Government. Although only 1-3% of the records created by the Federal Government are transferred to the National Archives, our holdings consist of hundreds of thousands of records, many of which may be of genealogical value.  The vast majority of our records are not name-searchable.

           

          For more information on conducting genealogical research within our records, please visit our webpage: https://www.archives.gov/research/genealogy.

           

          You may also wish to review the Census Records and Vital Records offices for the areas in which your ancestors settled.

           

          We hope this information is helpful.

           

          Sincerely,

           

          The National Archives and Records Administration
