Tips for Research
About This Site
Archives, Libraries, and Societies
Here a some places in Georgia where you can go to do research. You will be able to find microfilmed records, reference materials and other genealogical resources. Please email me if you know of others not listed here.
In 1979, Mrs. Elizabeth Pritchard Newsom formed the Washington County Genealogy Committee. Mrs. Newsom had been transcribing and
documenting various records and genealogical data for years and it seemed only fitting that others be able to benefit from it. She produced numerous
books over the years and helped researchers too numerous to count in their endeavor to find out where they came from. Her tireless energy and love
for the people and families of Washington County have been an inspiration to us all!
You may request look-ups from our volunteers for a fee. The cost of research is $10 plus 25 cents per copy. Please be as detailed as possible when
requesting lookups. We can help you better if we know what we're looking for. A self-addressed stamped envelope receives a faster reply. Also, please
keep in mind that our committee is made up of volunteers and we do receive a lot of requests, so please be patient.
