Map of Granville County, N.C. from Franis B. Hays’ scrapbook “Health, Doctors, Hospitals, Nurses.”

Six more volumes of the Francis B. Hays scrapbooks have been digitized and published on DigitalNC. From the Granville County Public Library, these scrapbooks are added to the already large collection of Francis B. Hays scrapbooks on a wide variety of topics, from Granville County history to churches to schools. Four of the scrapbooks are focused on obituaries, volumes VII-X. Another is titled “Health, Doctors, Hospitals, and Nurses” and includes clippings related to these topics in Granville County. The last is an index of the names of people in Oxford, N.C., referring to other scrapbooks in the collection. These scrapbooks, including the obituaries, are useful for people researching genealogy in Granville County and surrounding areas in North Carolina.
