Heritage Exchange

Banks county GA was established during 1858-1859. There was a list of Presbyterian Churches in the parts of other GA counties that were going to make up the new Banks county where enslaved African Heritage Ancestors we noted as members of one of the following churches.

It is noted that during Sunday School African-Heritage Ancestors were taught how to read and write until it was found out to be against the law.

This maybe useful to identify ex-enslaved ancestors that may not be identified from the 1850 and 1860 U.S. Slave Schedules.
