Take the Next Step

The old county court house records are an excellent resource for Genealogists.  In fact, after researching census records, it is the next step to discovering facts.  We must take these steps if we are to properly trace the trail of our ancestors.  For they did travel a trail.  It is one of personal life-styles dramatized by historical events.  Because every step that we take is driven by that which affects our decisions. The economy of each era causes adjustments and new decisions concerning income, jobs and where one resides, and so on.  Our ancestors were on the move, searching for land because generations of plowing wore out the soil. They followed opportunities of land grants and bounties in exchange for military service and drew in local land lotteries.  The removal of Indian tribes was a major factor in the acquisition of land.  This trail is well marked in deeds,estates, and old wills.  The court house is a treasure trove of information. Georgia Pioneers stands heads above all other websites in offering images of old wills and estates easy-to-view online as well as traced families, marriages, obituaries, cemeteries, personal collections, research notes and much more.
