Historical Collections of Georgia
This is a major collection of colonial and Revolutionary documents, biographical sketches of prominent persons, lists of early settlers, militia rolls and lists of soldiers and officers in the Revolution, and county-by-county sketches from the first settlement of Georgia down to the middle of the 19th century. The accounts of the counties include traditions, statistics, early settlers, and abstracts from the census of 1850. About one-third of the book is devoted to a collection of documents dealing with the colonial and Revolutionary periods, while a 41-page Appendix gives the principal statistics of the whole state as taken from the census of 1850. Since the work is an outstanding genealogical source for Georgia, we have added to the original work A.C. Dutton's Name Index of 58 pages, which was originally published by the Sons of the American Revolution. This index of 7,000 names supplements the 14-page subject index which comes with the work itself.
