Two New Titles -- NGS Research in the States Series

Two new titles have been added to the NGS Research in the States Series—Research in Georgia by Linda Woodward Geiger and Paul K. Graham and Research in South Carolina by Janis Walker Gilmore.

Available in both print and digital (PDF) formats, these volumes provide a brief summary of the early history of the state followed by a discussion of major research facilities and their resources including those available online. The remainder of each volume provides an overview of major research sources from atlases, gazetteers and maps to major sources for military and religious records and special sources for researching women. Researches will find the overview of the court system and its records as well as the discussion of the availability and restrictions on vital statistics especially helpful. Topics include information on manuscript, microfilm, print and online resources.

Research in Georgia and Research in South Carolina are the latest in the series which also includes:
·        Arkansas,
·        Illinois,
·        Maryland,
·        Michigan,
·        Missouri,
·        New Jersey,

  1. For GA researchers, Beginning July 1, 2011, public hours at the Georgia Archives will be Fridays and Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

    The new hours are a result of reductions in the Georgia Archives’ fiscal year 2012 budget. We regret the inconvenience this may cause researchers, and we greatly appreciate your understanding.
