Allison Hudgins, the Reference Manager at the Georgia Archives, previously worked at the Cobb County Public Library System, and at Mercer University Special Collections while she was a student. Allison holds a Masters of Library and Information Science from Valdosta State University.

The Georgia Archives is the state’s premier repository for researching families that have lived in Georgia during any period since its founding in 1733. Not only does it hold official state records, but it also has microfilm and some original county, city, and town records, church records, manuscripts compiled genealogies, family histories, county histories, and general genealogical reference works.

It also holds original land grants and plats both through the bounty land and the land lottery systems.  Digital collections have increased in recent years as well.  Ms. Hudgins will give an overview of the information available and explain how it can be accessed. 

The program flyer may be found at: https://www.augustagensociety.org/july-program.html 

JOIN AGS NOW and enjoy the benefits of several programs, which will be free to members in 2022.  The Augusta Genealogical Society is a non-profit organization founded in Augusta, Georgia in September 1979.
