Harris County, Georgia African-American Records



I am looking for primary or secondary records for African-American persons who lived in Harris County, Georgia. I am especially interested in the pre-1870 period, as research for this period is extremely difficult. I am compiling a list of African-American residents of Harris County below. I would appreciate any help with this project and suggestions. If you have Harris County estate records, wills, or other documents where slaves or freedmen are named, consider posting them here to aid African-Americans in their family research.
