New Guide: Genealogy at the UGA Libraries

March 1, 2010 – 10:01 AM

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.

  2. Tell me a ‘quick and dirty” way I can direct folks to your great new genealogy Subject guide. When I enter “genealogy subject guide” in the search box at the top of the home page, I get lots of hits (not necessarily what I want) or none (if I enter it in quotes)
    I need a way to help people of all levels get to this.
    Y’all did a great job with this, and we at Athens-Clarke County Library are constantly trying to get people to take advantage of the wonderful resources over there. I want to add these pages to my handouts, but the URL is way too long to copy and paste.
    Suggestions please?

    Thanks again for such a great guide!

  3. Hi Laura! How about using http://tinyurl.com/ ? I just made a shortcut for the page: http://tinyurl.com/ugagenealogy – that should be easier for you to use on handouts and for your patrons to remember!

  4. This is a very nice collection of materials on genealogy and family history. Just a reminder that one can also prove certain connections theough the use of Genealogy DNA Testing.
    Thanks for the UGA Guide.
