Codes used in the 1880 Mortality Schedule for Georgia

This document is a companion to the transcriptions of the 1880 Mortality
Schedule of Georgia. Each county schedule has been loaded into its
respective county directory.

This schedule was to record every death which occurred beginning
June 1, 1879 and ending May 31, 1880.

The data on each person is listed in the following order:
    County - Census Family No. - Name - Age - Sex- - Color -
    Married/Single/Divorced/Widowed - Birthplace -
    Father's Birthplace  Mother's Birthplace - Profession -
    Month of Death - Cause of Death - Length of time in County -
    Comments (Where illness started, etc.)

Where there was a question as to the spelling of a name I have
placed a '?' behind the name. Where the person providing the information
was not sure of the age or place of birth of the deceased or the
birthplace of parents a ')' has been entered.

Some enumerators listed the Family Number or identified Physician Returns
as 'PR' in the Family column.

Where the enumerators had indicated the individuals color as 'Mu' for
Mulatto someone has overwritten a B for Black on most of the
entries.  The following designations for race are used herein:
B = Black; I = Indian; M = Mulotto; and W = White.
