Georgia Archives Adds Microfilmed Bible Records

The Georgia Archives has added a collection of Bible records on microfilm. “The Georgia Archives actively microfilmed Bible records from the 1950s through the 1980s as substitutes for birth and death records, as the State of Georgia did not collect birth and death records until 1919. These records were brought to the Archives for microfilming by private citizens. The Bible records were retained by the original owners. The Georgia Archives microfilming program was discontinued in 1996.”
