Relics of the Past

The beautiful homes which we have in Georgia are but minor examples of the living past.  I say "living" because we remember those ancestors who came before us.  Even it was only one grandparent or aunt. Luckily, many of the old towns and neighborhoods still have remnants of old homes and churches, cemeteries, railroad tracks, and such.  There is always some old relic which we can discover in Georgia.  Over the years, as these areas go into decline, eventually there will be no evidence at all.  One good example is the graveyards.  A tombstone you may have seen in the past, might be gone today. Objects disappear. That is why it is a good idea to peruse the neighborhood where your families resided and take some photos of the places which were common to your ancestors.  Lots of genealogies and special collections are found on Georgia Pioneers
