Update: For a number of years now I have been digitizing last wills and testaments for most of the counties in Georgia. As you know, some records did not survive, mostly due to General Sherman and local court house fires. I, therefore, focused upon scanning the first will book in each county which includes (in some counties) estates. Some genealogy websites have financial backing, but I do not have this luxury. Therefore,I am accomplishing this project without help. The project itself is slo and overwhelming at times, but am happy to say that most of the wills written during the 1800s are now available on Georgia Pioneers. Abstracts are also available. You see, it is my belief that genealogists such as yourself should be able to enjoy the faster avenue of research by viewing the actual old documents online. Too, the State of Georgia has found it necessary to make budget cuts during the past two years and has only been open two days a week, Friday/Saturday. But there is a caveat. If a legal holiday occurs on Friday, the archives is also closed on Saturday. You just have to check their website before making the trip. I do hope that the many databases and records on Georgia Pioneers is helping you to find your families. As ever, I am working long hours to publish more information. Enjoy the holidays and be assured that I appreciate your membership and will continue he work to make Georgia Pioneer grow. Thank you all for your great support!
