On this home page, my latest book is introduced, followed on other pages by a description of my other seventeen books on either Clarke, Hancock, Jackson, Jefferson or Wilkes counties.
You might also be interested in looking at some of the old recipes and remedies that I ran across while abstracting the old newspapers. They bring to mind the difficulties in cooking many years ago. Some recipes have variations, but are still used in one form or another today. Use the remedies with caution, please!
  I sincerely hope my books aid in your genealogical research!

Jackson County, Georgia,
Newspaper Clippings,
Jackson Herald, 1886-1890

This is the 4th in a series of newspaper clippings books on Jackson County. This volume contains obits, marriages, sheriff's sales, jury lists, a section on legal notices, and also a section on "Photographs of Some Local Residents." Most of the death notices identified the causes of death, and even named the diseases when known. The articles are mostly about people in Jackson and surrounding counties, such as Banks, Franklin, Clarke, Hall, Gwinnett, Madison, Oconee and Walton. They are all interesting and many give clues about our ancestors. 
The 1890 US Census was largely destroyed in a warehouse fire, including the majority of Georgia's census records. These newspaper clippings will help identify if your ancestors were still in Jackson County, or had moved to Texas, Florida, or elsewhere.
Hardbound, 8-1/2" x 11", 453 + xi pages, with a full Personal Name Index and a Subject/Place Index -- $35.00.
