Georgia Bible Records
Georgia Bible Records. Jeannette Holland Austin. (1985).
This collection of Georgia Bible Records contains an itemized list of the births, marriages, and deaths found in approximately 1,000 family Bibles! Included are Bible records of some of Georgia's first settlers and prominent figures, as well as records of ordinary individuals, some of whom migrated to or from other states. Many of the records were sent to the compiler over a twenty-year period by the actual owners of the Bibles, while others she copied from Bibles located in the Georgia State Archives and the University of Georgia Library, or from genealogical publications. The collection spans a period stretching from the early 1700s to the 1900s, and because of its range and diversity it should be a gold mine to the researcher of Georgia families. It is absolutely unique, of course, and cannot be duplicated by any other body of records, published or manuscript. In all, some 20,000 persons are named in these records which often span several generations in a family.
