Most of us will agree. familysearch.org is the best place to start searching for records
"North Carolina Birth Index, 1800-2000," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:VC3Z-7W7 : 8 December 2014), James Leroy Jolly, 18 Dec 1922; from "North Carolina, Birth and Death Indexes, 1800-2000," database and images, Ancestry (http://www.ancestry.com : 2005); citing vol. 1922, p. 767, Robeson, North Carolina, North Carolina State Archives, Raleigh.
