We solve complex genealogical problems using Genetic Genealogy & traditional research.
"In all of us there is a hunger, marrow-deep, to know our heritage - to know who we are and where we have come from. Without this enriching knowledge, there is a hollow yearning. No matter what our attainments in life, there is still a vacuum, an emptiness, and the most disquieting loneliness." Alex Haley

Research in early Georgia can present a unique set of challenges for researchers unfamiliar with Georgia records and families. Georgia's record loss and lack of record creation become research hurdles when "proof," more often than not, must be determined by the use of indirect evidence - information from multiple records, when combined, constitutes proof or answers a research question. Fluid county boundary changes from Georgia's creation until the early 1900s means research must include not just the county where our ancestor is found, but also adjacent counties where records might have been moved or are stored. Knowledge of Georgia's repositories, its people, land lotteries, socio-economic history, and early migration patterns are essential to having a successful outcome for a research project.
As Georgia residents, it is easy for us to travel to county courthouses and other repositories throughout the state. We reside in Vidalia, Georgia, and have easy access to these southeastern and middle Georgia repositories:
The Tattnall Archives, Reidsville, Georgia;
We also utilize collections at the Georgia Archives when necessary.
