About this collection

File II Counties and Subjects is an artificial record series created by Georgia Archives staff beginning in the 1930s and arranged for easy access by subject or county to Archives records.  The series includes:  original records and correspondence removed from their original government record series;  typed transcripts of original documents made during WPA transcription projects during the late 1930s and early 1940s;  clippings;  and printed secondary research material.

 

This online collection includes only images of the original documents and transcripts.  Because of the size of the collection, secondary research materials are not included.

 

Source location was not cited in File II.  Original documents were removed from their context and all evidence of provenance has been lost.   The collection includes correspondence to and from early governors, administrators, legislators, county and local officials and is particularly strong in antebellum Georgia records. 

 

Funding for this online collection was provided by the R.J. Taylor, Jr., Foundation.

 

Note about indexing and digital collections: Keyword search the county or subject you wish to search and click the Search button.  County files are broken down or subdivided by subject.  Most of the original subject headings have been retained.

 

The Georgia Archives also has a collection of File II Names with the same Record Group and Series number, also digitized and in Georgia's Virtual Vault.

 

Usage Note: Users may download the images for personal or educational use - students may include images in reports, for instance, and teachers may use the images in the classroom - if the following credit line is included with the image: Courtesy of the Georgia Archives. Each image has a "Cite as" field in the Document Description.  Users can form a complete citation by combining the "Title" and "Cite as" fields for the individual image.
