For colonial Georgia see Province of Georgia.

Georgia was established in 1732 by James Oglethorpe and was the last of the original Thirteen Colonies. It was know then as the Province of Georgia, and was divided into parishes from 1758-1777. It became a state in February of 1777 with the ratification of its first constitution. As a result of this constitution, the original eight counties were formed: Burke, Camden, Chatham, Effingham, Glynn, Liberty, Richmond, and Wilkes. Georgia was admitted to the Union on January 2, 1788 as the 4th state to ratify the Constitution. It declared its secession from the Union on January 19, 1861, and was one of the original seven Confederate states and was the last state to be restored to the Union, on July 15, 1870. Georgia is the 24th most extensive and the 8th most populous of the 50 United States. Georgia is known as the Peach State and the Empire State of the South. Atlanta is the state's capital and its most populous city.

Genealogical Notes

Early Census information

  • 1790-1810: The first three census schedules for Georgia are missing. Tax lists for various years for a few of the counties have been published in Some Early Tax Digests of Georgia, ed. by Ruth Blair, 2 vols. (Atlanta: Georgia Archives, 1926), and An Index to Georgia Tax Digests, 1789-1817. (Published for the R. J. Taylor Jr. Foundation; Spartanburg, SC: Reprint Co., 1986). These can be used as a substitution for the first three census schedules. Additionally, there is Substitute for Georgia‚Äôs Lost 1790 Census (Albany, Ga.: Delwyn Associates, 1975). Wills, deeds, tax digests, court minutes, voter lists, and newspapers were searched to compile this list. Other Census information has been lost as well, for further on this please see Georgia Archives Census Research.
