Brian Nichols has just started a website at www.genealogyclassifieds.com and would like
to see if anyone would like to list any old genealogy books or publications they would like to sell. Its free and hopefully someone may have a book or society magazine someone else needs as well as putting some of the original cost you incurred back into your own pocket for new genealogical books or publications purchases.
Books can be found listed on the
East Georgia Genealogical Society, Inc.
Website. Order Forms onsite.

Oconee County, Georgia Marriage Records 1875 - 1920
A COGS project led by Mary Hoit Abbe. This 198 page hardback book lists over 4000 marriages that took place in Oconee County from February of 1875, when the county was founded, through 1920. The marriages are indexed alphabetically by the surnames of both the grooms and the brides. Since many of these people were, at their birth, residents of Clarke County and descendants of earlier residents of Clarke County, these marriage records should be of use to many Clarke County researchers as well as those researching in Oconee County. Furthermore, people of color were so noted on the licenses and this information has been included in the book. Published 2002.

The children of Mary (Hardegree) Holloway are listed briefly. Other chapters feature the possible origins of our surname, the early migrations, the articles on the Cameron,
Elder, Fambrough and Grimes family history, and 1790 to 1900 census data. Also included are more photographs, maps and a full name index. This family has early roots in the counties of Clarke and Oconee, arriving in the area before 1800. A limited number of books were printed with no plans for reprints.
