Hi the best place to resaerch in eastern NC other than the courthouse in Jacksonville is:
Heritage Place at Lenoir Community College in Kinston, NC

Lenoir Community College
P.O. Box 188
231 Highway 58 South
Kinston, NC 28502
252-527-6223 ext. 508

This at the intersection of Hwy NC 58 South and US 70 East

The hours are: Monday thru Wednesday 9am to 5 pm
Thursday 9am to 9pm
Friday 9am to 3pm
Closed Saturday and Sunday
I would call ahead to make sure they are open as they are a Community College and hours change when classes are out.

This has a large collection of local books for eastern NC as well as family histories; a complete microfilm collection; an archive collection of various items: family bibles, deeds, wills, pictures and etc.
This would be a great place to do research for Onslow County and surrounding areas.
I hope that this helps
