The University of Georgia Libraries have a wealth of information about family history and genealogy – maybe even yours! We now have a new subject guide highlighting some of our print and online resources for finding obituaries, military records, newspapers, census and other vital records, for Georgia and other locations.
The library also subscribes to the Ancestry Library Edition (on campus access only), a version of ancestry.com. This searchable database includes census records (1790-1930), military records, the social security death index, emigration records, and many other collections of information.
The Heritage Room at the Athens-Clarke County Library on Baxter Street is another excellent local resource for history and genealogy. They regularly have free information sessions and special programs about doing genealogical research; see the program schedule for dates and times.
