County Coordinator - Up For Adoption

This site is up for adoption - If you are interested in hosting it for The GAGenWeb Project, please visit this page.

The GAGenWeb is part of The USGenWeb Project.  We are an organization of volunteers dedicated to providing information freely to other family history researchers. This site only grows with the donation of research materials such as family histories, deeds, obituaries, marriage notices and license, birth records, cemetery transcriptions, etc. If you have any information to share please contact Linda Blum-Barton. Take a look around and come back to visit often.

Burke County was created in 1777.  Burke County was organized from St George Parish.
