Edwards Genealogy - Eastern North Carolina and Eastern South Carolina

Genealogy > Edwards

Welcome to my Edwards genealogy pages. I am interested in the Edwards surname in eastern North Carolina, primarily in Wayne and Duplin Counties. My Edwards left that region and moved to Horry Co., SC in the 1850's. Some went to western TN, namely Madison County. I have only limited interest in the Edwards surname in counties other than those just mentioned.

My old Edwards Pages - I created web pages for many of the Edwards families. These are old and way out of date, but they do still contain useful information, so I've left them online for now, pending transfering all the data to my new database. Keep in mind that they haven't been updated in years. Refer to my newer pages before offering any "corrections."

Edwards Family Pages - Each Edwards family has their own web page, complete with all documentation I've found so far.  The link will take you to the surname index. Find the "Edwards" surname and click on it and an index of all individuals will be displayed. Or you can use the search engine (to the left) to find a specific family or person.
