Part of The USGenWeb Project
A significant number of Georgia settlers migrated from South Carolina and North Carolina, especially in the 1830's at the time of the Land & Gold Lotteries. And many more went from Georgia to Alabama, Arkansas, Missouri, and on to Texas in the period just before and after the Civil War.
Be sure to visit the neighboring state websites when researching your families from Georgia.

USGenWeb Digital Map Library
As the USGenWeb site states, "USGenWeb started branching out and some more specialized "projects" were created to collect and disseminate data that goes beyond county and state lines". A listing of these Special Projects and their descriptions can be found on the USGenWeb site.
See also Georgia Place Names on the Carl Vinson Institute of Government website. Listed are about 10,000 Georgia place names (both historical and current), with links to maps showing a majority of the places.
