(New Hanover County) – The New Hanover County Register of Deeds is seeking the help of citizens in locating information and photographs on the County’s previously elected Registrars.

“I am reaching out to any citizens in the community that may have any knowledge of a family member, ancestor or friend that may have been a past elected Register of Deeds for New Hanover County,” said Registrar Tammy Beasley.

With a passion for genealogy Beasley has acquired photographs of three past Registrars, Lois C. LeRay, E. Paul Blanchard and John Haar. Photos are being displayed at the downtown location along with a plaque depicting the names of all past New Hanover County Registrars and their dates of service.

“I think that there is valuable information out there and I am committed to recognizing those who have served in this office and served our citizens,” added Beasley.

If you have any information please call Tammy Beasley at (910) 798-7736 or via email​
