Genealogy Research of North Carolina is a full-service genealogical, heir searching, and lineage research firm.

I am Victoria P. Young, principal of Genealogy Research of North Carolina, and have been providing services as a full-time professional genealogist since 2004, specializing in Southern U.S., lineage applications and forensic research. In addition to my work on more than 600 client projects, I have also completed many cases for the U.S. Army's Casualty and Memorial Affairs Division in its mission to repatriate WWII soldiers. I have testified as an expert witness in a N.C. Superior Court, performed research for PBS's Finding Your Roots hosted by Henry Louis Gates, Jr., and completed numerous projects as a subcontractor to AncestryProgenealogists.™

I served on the board of the North Carolina Genealogical Society, including two terms as President, from 2007–2021, and currently volunteer on the board of the North Carolina Friends of the Archives. In addition to these organizations, I am also a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists, the Virginia Genealogical Society, the Council for the Advancement of Forensic Genealogists, and the National Genealogical Society.
