A Field Guide for Genealogists (Google eBook)
Families of Southeastern Georgia is a reprint of the third and final volume of Dr. Averitt's 1964 publication, Georgia's Coastal Plain: A History, the volume that holds greatest importance for genealogists.Each of the roughly 1,000 sketches arranged here gives the subject's place and date of birth, his educational background and military service, and then his career, civic interests, church affiliation, hobbies, and so on. In almost every case, the author furnishes the names of the subject's parents, spouse, children, and spouse's parents, usually citing the subject's date of marriage and the dates or places of birth and death of at least these three generations of family members.
