In Response To: Re: Burke County GA brick wall ()
Hi, Anna. I happened to see your message mentioning Burke County, Georgia. My interest in Burke County is motivated by the history of Millen, Jenkins County, Georgia. One of my grand uncles was actually born in what was then officially Burke County in 1897, and perhaps other ancestors were as well.
The following message was posted by me at AfriGeneas, and shows a map of this area of Georgia:
I have no HART surnames in my family history [yet], but I have not completed the histories of the surnames I am researching from the area: ADAMS, BRINSON, and KELSEY. If any of these surnames are familiar to you, please let me know.
A resource from that area is the 'Hollingsworth Cards', a card file that was maintained by a local newspaper publisher. The files contain information gathered on the lives of the residents of Screven and surrounding counties. A searchable database of this file can be found at http://www.sjrls.org/gene/default.cfm
