         An ongoing project for the Society is to scan all the past Quarterlies onto disk in order to be able to print new copies of the Quarterlies when an original is no longer available. This is a time consuming task and as of now only two people have scanners and are able to work on it. As we scan the Quarterlies we are adding Table of Contents, Full name indexes and correcting the scanned copies as needed. If you have a scanner and any of the past Quarterlies please volunteer to scan these quarterlies and e-mail them to me. We are completely out of many of the quarterlies and only have the "Master Copy" of these.  We will furnish you with the quarterly and you may keep the copy of any  Quarterly you scan that you don't have.  In order to update the past Quarterlies we need help.
Information for ordering past Quarterlies is listed above.

Floyd Co., Ga. Marriages - The Early Years 3d Ed. 1834-1884          © 1983,1989, 1995
This transcription of the first four Floyd Co., Ga., marriage books covers the years 1834 to 1884 and contains slightly over 5,000 marriages, and supersedes all previous efforts. The Third Edition embodies additional corrections and amplifications of the 1983 transcription which resulted from working with early Floyd County records. 
These records, taken from the official county records, are listed alphabetically by the groom's surname. The full name Index contains an alphabetical listing of the bride's surname. An asterisk indicates black persons as noted on the marriage record. Following the marriage date is the volume and page number where that record is found. The last column contains the cemetery number where one or both marriage partners are buried. A few newspaper marriage notices not included in the official county records have been integrated into the main body of this edition for quicker reference. 
This hardback volume contains 132 pages and measures approximately 22 X 28.5 cm.

Floyd Co., Ga. Records - Vital Statistics 2nd Ed. 
Combined Vol. V 1930-1935 & Vol. VI 1936-1940 © 1988, 1995

Beginning in August, 1930, the Rome News - Tribune published as a regular feature Vital Statistics from the Floyd County Department of Health. This record of births and deaths in Floyd County is taken from these accounts. Volume V covers the years 1930 to 1935 with Volume VI carrying the record forward 1936 to 1940. A few of the births are from delayed birth certificates and reach back into the 1880's. Volume V and Volume VI are combined in one binding. The first section covering county deaths gives the name of the deceased, age, place of residence, date of death and the cemetary (by number). The second section of county births includes name of parents, maiden name of the mother, place of residence, date of birth, and sex of child. When twins were born, the sex of the children was not given. In cases where the mother's maiden name was not included, it sometimes could be located in county marriage records, and is enclosed in parenthesis. Following the section of births is a full-name index of the mothers' maiden names.
This book is hardback and measures approximately 22 X 28.5 cm. Volume V contains 133 pages and Volume VI, 149 pages. Laser printed on 20 pound paper. Price of this combined issue is $45

Floyd Co., Ga. 1890 - A Census Substitute - Vol. VII   © 1990
 

 The 1892 Tax Digest was one source used as a basis for this census substitute. The 1892 Floyd County Tax Digest is arranged by militia districts with whites and blacks listed separately. Defaulters are given after those who paid. As individuals were already in rough alphabetical order there was no reason to maintain original order.
The tax digest gives the heads of households but not the family members. We will never be able to fully duplicate the family groupings of the original census schedule, but much data can be assembled from records on hand. These records include: cemetery surveys, marriage records, other courthouse records such as wills, funeral home records, newspapers, etc. Floyd County newspapers are missing for these years: most of 1889, 1890, 1891, 1892, and the first 10 months of 1893. From extant Rome newspapers residency statements from obituaries made an invaluable contribution towards reconstructing the 1890 census for Floyd County. The main body of this work is my compilation of "Likely Residents of Floyd County, 1890," from cross-referencing the tax digest with the above mentioned records.
This volume is hardback and measures approximately 22 X 28.5 cm. Volume VII contains 345 pages and is printed on 20 pound paper. Full-name index. 
Price of this volume is $55.00 + $5.50 postage & handling (Georgia residents add $2.75 sales tax.)

Confederates, assembled from all extant rosters, obituaries, tombstone inscriptions, roll of Confederate Veterans' Camp #368, pension records, newspaper accounts, and Cross of Honor Lists. Where possible the Confederate is identified in the 1860 Floyd census, in the 1866 Tax Digest, in marriage records, unit reports. An appendix of Polk County Confederates follows: Pensioners and veterans identified in cemetery records.
