What was the source for this book?

The Macon County, North Carolina, Delayed Birth Certificates were the primary source for this list of compiled births. Microfilm of the register, obtained from the State Archives in Raleigh, was used for initial data entry. Then additional information was compiled from the certificates located in the Register of Deeds Office, Macon County. The Index of Delayed Births was consulted for difficult to read portions, missing data, and/or conflicting data.
