Articles in periodicals pertaining to Lincoln County

The following come mostly from Persi, however in researching this it was found some that are not in the PERSI that should be and a few confusing references mostly that deal with numbers of bound volumes as opposed to ind. volumes. Sources not from PERSI will be noted.
I also found one source "Georgia Researcher" that I can not find mentioned anywhere else and which even Allen County Library (the source of the PERSI index) appears not to have. If anyone knows anything about Georgia Researcher I would love to have more info. It is not to be confused with the "Georgia Armchair Researcher" published 20 years later. I would love to have info on articles of interest to Lincoln Co., GA from sources not listed. There are probably quite a few not indexed.
