New! Minutes of the New Hope Baptist Church from 1843 to 1860. It is a good idea to search church minutes and other records as these types of records are very difficult to locate. Churches keep baptismal, death and attendance information. Pictured is the Dawson County Court House, Jasper, Georgia, and scenes from Dawson County. Dawson County was created in 1857 from Lumpkin County. Later a portion was taken from Gilmer County. County seat is Dawsonville. (In 1850, Calhoun was called Dawsonville before it was renamed.) The County was named for Judge William C. Dawson. Researchers should also search Lumpkin County.
