Guidelines for Genealogy Questions
The types of questions we CAN answer require brief factual answers, such as:

picture of a pin used as a bullet in a list My grandmother was born in Colquitt County but died in Miller County. Do you have cemetery records for Miller County?
We CAN NOT answer questions that require in-depth research, such as:
picture of a pin used as a bullet in a list What is the best genealogy software to use?
picture of a pin used as a bullet in a list Who were the children of Dr. John Smith, who lived in Colquitt County, in 1850 - 1879?

If your question requires extensive research, you may come to the library and we will help you get started or you may hire the services of a professional researcher.
The Georgia Genealogy Society maintains a list of independent researchers for hire.
