SW Georgia Newspaper Clippings

Hello,

I am Zaroga Goff and I am in the process of abstracting articles (clippings) from various newspapers.  I'm starting with the ASHBURN ADVANCE. 

If anyone else has clippings of newspapers that they would like posted at this web site they are most welcome to contact me and I will be glad to post them. 

I cannot make promises on how fast articles will be added.  I am abstracting from copies of newspapers on microfilm.  They are at times very difficult to read.  I have done my best to figure out what some words are through blurs, creases and rips. Occasionally you will see a notation that I couldn't read something. Most of the spelling and grammar errors are the writer's mistakes and not this abstractor's.... I'm not perfect... on occasion a typo on my part might happen.

Please use your browser "find" function to find a particular name on a page.  Warning: some of the surnames have various spellings and misspellings.  Using the search box  provided at the bottom of this page in conjunction with the "find" function is highly recommended.  Entering just a surname will give you better results than entering a given name with the surname.  Many entries use initials instead of given names.  Example: John Jacob Jones would appear J. J. Jones and his wife's name might appear as Mrs. J. J. Jones.

Some articles appear in several newspaper editions, such as sheriff sales and other legal notices.  I only put the first one to not be repetitive. 

The opinions in articles are not mine.  I do not wish to offend anyone.  My goal is to help researchers find their ancestors and to maybe help them add a story to their family history.  Genealogy without such stories is just names and numbers and not a history.

You may use the articles within this site for your personal use.  I ask that you do not take my hard work and claim it as your own.  If you would like a photo copy of any of the pages just email me.

Click on the gold buttons and enjoy a trip into the past.
