Searchable historic records are made available on FamilySearch.org through the help of thousands of volunteers from around the world. These volunteers transcribe (index) information from digital copies of handwritten records to make them easily searchable online. More volunteers are needed (particularly those who can read foreign languages) to keep pace with the large number of digital images being published online at FamilySearch.org.

Savannah State University Plans to Build on a Cemetery

The following teaser is from an article posted at 11alive.com:

Savannah-State-University-proposed-building-200pw

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — A public hearing is planned to consider concerns about Savannah State University’s plans to build a science and technology center on the site of an old cemetery.

The Savannah Morning News reports that the area was part of the Placentia Plantation Colored Cemetery a century ago.

NGS Research in the States Series: Georgia

ngs15

“Georgia, the thirteenth colony, was established in 1733. The state had frontier land until almost the beginning of the Civil War and extinguished the last Indian title within its boundaries in 1835. This continual push to open new land characterizes the first on hundred years of state history and is crucial to understanding the movements of people across the state. The records they created document the lives and relationships sought by their descendants today. To help researchers better document Georgia families, this guide outlines the types of records available, identifies repositories where they might be found, and lists the most useful finding aids and published record indexes.”

This Issue: NGS Research in the States Series: Georgia; written by Linda Woodward Geiger and Paul K. Graham.

Home to several Indian tribes, including Creek, Yamassee, Apalache, and Cherokee, the lands to become Georgia was given to a company chartered to establish a colony between the Carolinas and Spanish controlled land. King George II gave authority in 1732 to 21 trustees. Along with the first English settlers, there were 42 Salzburger families and some Highland Scots, who after taking oaths as British Citizens, joined the newly started colony. As with all the colonies, from there things grew and immigrants came from many places.

Each guide in this series offers a bit of history behind each type of record or resource as well as names and descriptions for specific archives.  For example, under the heading Historic Sites, a section not found in most of the guides, you will find the following:

“Although Georgia’s historic sites are not ‘libraries,’ they frequently possess materials that are of value to genealogists. Among the most useful for research are Andersonville National Historic Sites, Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park, Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park,…”

In the guide, each section is handled in like manner. Plenty of specific information on what records are available and where to find them.

About the Series

Beginning in 1987, the National Genealogical Society began publishing a series of state guides in the organization’s magazine, the Quarterly. These guides were later re-issued as special publications designed to support genealogical research in each state. Eventually those guides became outdated and out of print. The current set of guides represents a refresh of those publications, updated and improved for today’s traditional and digital research resources.

About the Authors

Linda Woodward Geiger is “a principal and instructor for Regional In-depth Genealogical Studies Alliance. She specializes in Georgia records, records held by the National Archives at Atlanta, and Cherokee heritage documentation. Her area of personal interest lies with records of Cherokee and Creek removal.

Paul K. Graham specializes in Southern families research. He holds a masters in Heritage Preservation from Georgia State University. He has published several books, written for the NGS Quarterly, and the Georgia Genealogical Society’s Quarterly, with Georgia and Georgia land use being key topics.

More About the State Guides (from the Introduction)

“Readers should be aware that every effort has been made to include current web addresses throughout the publication and all were verified immediately prior to release…”

“Two research facilities used by many genealogists are the Family History Library (FHL) and the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). Most genealogists are familiar with the abbreviations used for these two facilities and they are used in these publications. Otherwise the use of abbreviations and acronyms is kept to a minimum.”

Remains of the Confederate Ironclad CSS Georgia to Be Raised

CSS_Georgia-250pw

It’s planned that salvage crews will work through next September in the process of raising what remains of armored Confederate ironclad CSS Georgia. The ironclad has been deteriorating 30 feet below the surface of the Savannah River for over 150 years.

The Army Corps of Engineers has begun recovery efforts to bring up the remains of the vessel. It was scuttled by its crew to prevent its capture by Gen. William T. Sherman’s Union army in December 1864. The shipwreck lies in the area where the river winds east of downtown Savannah, Georgia.

The Georgia Frontier; Three Volume Set — 15% OFF

cf9873The Georgia Frontier; Three Volume Set, by Jeannette Holland Austin

Volume I: Colonial Families to the Revolutionary War

Volume II: Revolutionary War Families to the Mid-1880

Volume III: Descendents of Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina Families

Following General James Oglethorpe’s initial settling of Europeans from England, Scotland, and the Palatine to the Georgia Colony and the dissolution of the Georgia trustees’ charter, the British Crown offered substantial land grants to entice other colonists to settle and work the Georgia countryside.

As early as 1752, colonists from New England, Virginia, and the Carolinas poured into Georgia, bringing with them their families, servants, and sometimes entire religious communities. By 1775, these “frontier” settlements had established extensive coastal cotton and rice plantations. After the Revolution, Patriot veterans established homesteads by taking up land grants for their war services. During the early 1800s, Georgia employed a series of land lotteries to attract even more settlers. Once the federal government had “removed” Georgia’s Cherokee and Creek populations during the late 1820s, the stage was set for a climactic state lottery of middle and western Georgia lands in 1832.

Set against the history of Georgia’s advancing frontier, this unprecedented three-volume work, the outgrowth of one genealogist’s professional lifetime of tracing Georgia family histories, sets forth the genealogies of 591 families, referencing tens of thousands of Georgia settlers. The families are divided into three convenient groupings: (1) those who settled prior to 1775, (2) families who first entered Georgia between the Revolution and before the Civil War, and (3) families that migrated to Georgia from Virginia, North Carolina, or South Carolina during various periods.

It is impossible to praise this new compendium of family histories too highly. Mrs. Austin’s work is destined to be regarded as a landmark in Georgia genealogy. Scan the surnames of the main families covered, below, to learn if your Georgia ancestors are those who pioneered the Georgia frontier.

William Dollarhide is best known as the co-author and cartographer of Map Guide to the U.S. Federal Censuses, a book of 393 census year maps, and one of the bestselling titles ever published in the field of genealogy. Mr. Dollarhide currently lives in Utah. He has written numerous guidebooks related to genealogical research.

With this series of genealogical guides, William Dollarhide continues his long tradition of writing books that family historians find useful in their day-to-day United States research. Bill’s Name List guides give a state-by-state listing of what name lists are available, where to find them, and how they can be used to further one’s research.

Name lists are key to success in any genealogical endeavor. Name lists, be they national, state, county, or even city or town in scope, can help nail down the precise place where one’s ancestor may have lived. And if that can be done, further records, usually found on a local level, will now be accessible to research. But success depends on knowing where the ancestor resided. This is where Dollarhide’s Name List guides can make the difference.
