This site is definitely one of the most well-designed county society pages I have ever seen. Thanks for the effort you put into providing these resources to the public.

I am interested in getting a copy of the Box family history from your archives but am not able to visit in person. Is it possible to received a scanned copy via email? If a printed copy is the normal means of sending information, I would gladly pay any fee required but I'm not sure of the protocol for requesting documentation. Can you please let me know what the protocol is for receiving information? My email is Thanks!

would like to contact anyone doing research on Cleveland family, specifically Tabitha Cleveland, born 1835 in Elbert Co, GA and allegedly married to George Sanford Taylor and then to Alexander McCullough. I would like to verify the marriage to George Sanford Taylor. Based on the ages of their alleged children, Jesse and William, there should be a record of them in the 1860 census as a married couple. I cannot find a record of them in 1860 but can find a record of a George S Taylor whose age and birth location appear to match George Sanford Taylor and whose children's names and ages appear to match but his wife's name is recorded as Susan. Any ideas. please email me at Thank-you.

If Carol Redmond views this site, please contact me at I found a cemetery record for Zylphia Davis but no additional information on her father. Carol's comment had no additional contact information so maybe she will see this note.
