Comment response:

If you are looking for information about districts for Representatives and Senators in the North Carolina General Assembly, there is some information on their website. http://www.ncga.state.nc.us/representation/WhoRepresentsMe.aspx.

Information about the 2011 redistricting may also be found at http://www.ncleg.net/representation/redistricting.aspx.

If you need additional information, we are happy to help. Just let us know what questions you have. You may send an email directly to Reference Services at the NC Government & Heritage Library. Their contact information may be found at http://statelibrary.ncdcr.gov/contact.html

Good luck in your research, and thank you for contacting us.

I couldn't find the info i needed most,how settlers were able to obtain the new territory. So, i went to different sites, it wasn't in any of those either. Can you help me(I'm in 5th grade)?

Comment response:

I hope these three entries in NCpedia may help you:

http://ncpedia.org/history/colonial/early-settlement
http://ncpedia.org/history/colonial/coastal-plain
http://ncpedia.org/history/colonial/piedmont

In North Carolina, people just came and started setting up towns. As you can read in the entries above, this caused conflict. It also caused some other problems for the American Indians who were here. This entry discusses that: http://ncpedia.org/history/early/contact.

Is this the time period you are looking for, and the kind of information you are looking for? If not, just contact us at the email address listed on this page: http://statelibrary.ncdcr.gov/contact.html

Thanks,

I can't find some of the information that I need on here. I'm doing a project and I can't find the founder of NC or when it was established. I also need to know some of the economic resources and I can't seem to find that, either. ._.

Are you asking when NC became a colony? If so, these are two essays talk about North Carolina before it became a state: http://ncpedia.org/history/colonial/coastal-plain, http://ncpedia.org/history/colonial/roanoke-island. The date it became a state is listed above, on this page.

For information on economic resources, I'd recommend checking the NC Atlas Revisited essay on North Carolina's economy at http://ncatlasrevisited.org/Economy/econtitle.htm.

I hope this helps!
