These are in the process of being posted by decade and surname on this web site. I will be willing to look up any names not yet posted.

Also, check out the Georgia Genealogy Helplist for information on people in Georgia who are willing to do research in different counties. Some of them live near libraries and/or societies while others own books on various topics. Please be considerate to our volunteers and request only one lookup at a time.

If you have resources (books, microfilm, indexes, Bible records, etc) for Bibb County and would like to volunteer to help with look-ups, please email Jennifer Braswell.

Be sure to put "Bibb County" in the subject line.
