Window Looking Out into the Ocean - Writing Desk in Front

Welcome to our Digital Reading Library Digital Library Collection of Historical Georgia History Books

Here you will find many hours of enjoyment reading histories on various counties in Georgia, diaries about the civil war, and hundreds of articles from old newspapers.  "Oh, you came here for genealogy reasons." "That's o.k., check our list to see if the history of your county is online yet, if so, it is a wonderful source for finding family information and learning about the life that people led in those particular counties.  If you don't find your book online yet, don't despair, you can check our county sites for your family information, and don't forget those newspapers, you just might find where your great-grandfather went to visit Aunt Pearl over in Milledgeville or Atlanta, or where Uncle Donald was actually a member of the Mountain Rectifiers (well that might be a story you wouldn't want to tell, but again, you should - history is history, and history written is never forgotten, or at least that's what my online friend Wally says.  That is also our purpose for this library, to ensure that histories are not lost to our coming generations, just as we are finding how valuable these books are to us, so too will our coming generations.  So preserve the memories of your family in a written form and make sure you tell about the good times, and the bad, your children and their children and their children, etc. won't live to experience many of the things you do today, so make sure you tell them about your life growing up, what you remember your parents and grandparents & extended families telling you about their lives, it will be something that will be cherished for each of their lifetimes.  Ok, that's enough from me right?  Well, do go grab a cup of coffee, tea or cappuccino because the books below are going to take you awhile to read. 

I almost forgot, if you have a published family history book you would like included here,
we will gladly add it to the collection. 

You can choose other sites from the drop down menu bar below.  ENJOY YOUR BOOK.
