Question:  I am researching my Georgia ancestors.  I have exhausted federal censuses, can you tell me if there were any State Censuses kept?


Answer:  You can order Family History Library microfilm and have it send to NEHGS to view.  George had state census returns for certain counties in the years:1827, 1834, 1837,1838, 1845, 1852, 1859, and 1879. To view the catalog for the microfilms you can order and have sent to NEHGS go to:
