A Variety of Sources
I would like to do look-ups for people inquiring about Macon County, Georgia.
I have a number of Macon County records such as:
Marriage Books A-B-C-D
Deed Books A through J [microfilm] from 1857 when Court House was rebuilt after being burned until 1902.
History of Macon County by Louise Frederick Hays; Macon County Life [update of Macon County History] by Dean Fowler.
Cemeteries of Macon County, Georgia by Millie Stewart, Guelda Hay & Davine V. Campbell.
1838 & 1852 Tax Digest
1840-1850-1860-1870 [printed census] 1880-1900-1910 & 1920 on microfilm; History of Marshallville's First Baptist Church 1848-1998 by Davine V. Campbell, Chm. of History Committee - Printed and for Sale. A number of Family files on Marshallville families. I have answered a number of queries listed on the Old Queries pages and found that I can handle this without much problem. My reason for hesitating was that my husband is probably going to have major surgery within the next month and I was hesitant to volunteer. From: Davine
One of the most important tools of the genealogist is the Federal Census. Helen Hudson has very kindly offered to do lookups in the 1840, 1850, 1860, and 1870 editions of the Census for Macon County. This is how we locate our ancestors and trace their movements and the growth of their families. For more details, go to Census Lookups or for an e-mail form to contact Helen Hudson, click on her name.
Andersonville Civil War Camp
Had a successful trip to the new POW Museum at Andersonville today. The database they have there includes prisoners held there as well as those that died there from 1864-1865. I spoke with one of the workers there, and they are interested in obtaining more information on these individuals' military records and memoirs, pictures, etc., and adding it to the database. They recommend obtaining military records from the national archives, as well. I also purchased a copy of the Atwell List, a list of the prisoners that died in the camp, and will do lookups as requested. If you would like more information, contact me or you can write or call the museum at:

Teresa S. Todd (Teesee)has very kindly offered to do lookups in three important books that include this area.
I have "Historical Sketches of Oglethorpe, Georgia" by Lois E. Payne. It includes brief histories of places and a few outstanding citizens.
I also have "The Lutherans in Georgia" by Theodore G. Ahrendt. The information contained in it covers the entire state, but does mention Macon County specifically in two separate places.
Also, "Andersonville Georgia USA" by Peggy Sheppard, mostly concerns Capt. Henry Wirz, with some unindexed information concerning Yankee prisoners and a few local folks.
There are links on the main page of Macon County for further research on Andersonville and also Prison of War Camps that held Southern Prisoners.
