Georgia Genealogy Resources

Georgia is one of those states where I have nobody and even my husband, with quite a few Southern roots, only has collateral Williams family who settled in the northwest corner of the state, close to Tennessee.

Here are a number of websites to get you started. Each has many links to other sites, mostly free.

As always, be sure to check local towns and counties for libraries and historical societies with unique holdings!
