Bob Davis is a renowned genealogist, who literally wrote the book on the genealogical collections held at the Georgia Archives. His 1981 work titled Research in Georgia: With a Special Emphasis Upon the Georgia Department of Archives and History, is a classic reference guide. It was updated and expanded in 2001 by the publication of Georgia Research: A Handbook for Genealogists, Historians, Archivists, Lawyers, Librarians, and Other Researchers that he co-authored with Ted Brooke. Davis has contributed many volumes and journal articles to Georgia genealogy and is among the foremost authorities on research in the state.
Mr. Davis’ research interests include the American Revolution in Georgia and South Carolina. He has built an outstanding collection at Wallace State Community College that pioneers promoting and teaching local and family history research in a college environment. Besides family history, he also teaches U.S. history, western civilization, world history, and continuing education classes on basic, Southern, Civil War, advanced and computer genealogy.
