About Raleigh Research
We are a company specializing in family history research in North Carolina. Our name, Raleigh Research, draws inspiration from the legendary Sir Walter Raleigh and from the"Triangle" area of Raleigh, North Carolina where our research services are based.

Sir Walter RaleighSir Walter Raleigh was instrumental in the settling of the Carolinas as it was his 16th century colony at Roanoke Island which inaugurated the colonial period in the region. This early settlement was the cradle of some of America's earliest history, a history which has now become such a legend and a legacy. Raleigh was a rare and visionary man who would have undoubtably appreciated the manifold ways in which his vision has evolved over the past 400 years.

Raleigh's vision continues today through the development of the "Research Triangle". The "Triangle", as it is affectionately known includes three of North Carolina's most highly acclaimed cities: Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill. This is an exciting region in what has come to be called "the New South", a place where the Triangle has rapidly emerged as an important leader in international business, culture, technology, and education.

 This is an exciting time in North Carolina's continuing history, and in it is the genesis of a new paradigm, a time whennew stories are being created to tell to future generations of North Carolina descendants.

"Not to know what happened before we were born is to remain
perpetually a child. For what is the worth of a human life unless it
is woven into the life of our
ancestors by the records of history"
-Cicero (106-43 B.C.)

"Those who not look upon themselves as a link connecting the
with the future do not perform their duty to the world"
-Daniel Webster, creator of Webster's Dictionary 

Why do Genealogy?
All families have an interesting story to tell. It is because of  the diversity and richness of our past,
and how our individual families have contributed

to the making of that history, that makes genealogy

so interesting and universal. Americans are discovering more and more the importance of what can be revealed through focused and enlightened research into their genealogical heritage. When we discover our "roots", we start to see the big picture in our lives. We then begin to perceive and understand the patterns, values, beliefs, and ideas that have sprung from our cultural and family "inheritance", and which are even part
of our lives today

Discovering your family's roots is a sort of homecoming, an awakening, a telescope into the past to discover your origins. It is an excitng, inspiring, fulfilling, and enlightening adventure through the mists of time. We would  like to be your partner in this process of discovery, and we can assist you in many and varied ways. Genealogical research is a very rewarding and personal odyssey of uncovering your family's story. A genealogy is more than names and dates in a family tree; it is a window into the past, a vista infused with richness and meaning, with much to  teach us about where we came from, where we are now, and where we are going.
