2. DRIVING: ROAD DIRECTIONS


The Brantley County Historical and Preservation Society takes pride in it's participation with GAGENWEB, and does extensive research and provides genealogy information on-line free of charge.


As a non-profit charitable organization, we do the leg-work to make your genealogical research easier. We've deprived you the joys of tramping through approximately 60 country-type, weed growing, sand-spur-picking, hot-sweaty, non commercial cemeteries and searching over 11,000 burial sites, dating back into the 1800's for the grave sites of your ancestors.. In addition to all that, we're not sure you could find all these burial spots without our "road directions."


CEMETERY MARKERS DETERIORATE: Many of the old pioneer grave markers were made of wood or concrete. Many of these old wooden cemetery markers have deteriorated since the initial collection of information in our files, and may not be in existence at this time. Most of Brantley County's pioneer cemeteries are much older that the county, and pioneer deaths occurred long before the creation of Brantley County in August, 1920. Before that time, the Brantley County land area was under the governmental jurisdiction of Wayne, Pierce, and Charlton Counties, and did not maintain records until January 1st, 1921.


YET BEWARE: "Human effort is less than perfect!" While our goal has been perfection, not all of our sources were accurate. Information has been collected from family genealogical books, newspaper obituaries, word of mouth from relatives, and cemetery surveys. We have discovered that some family members provided incorrect information, and that the land for some family grave sites has been left unattended, or later sold, and "plowed under."


The Brantley County Historical and Preservation Society, Inc., has published
"CEMETERIES AND MORE," containing over 11,000 entries,
which contains many names for parents and spouses.
