The Georgia Department of Archives and History has made
available unbound headright and bounty documents files for the years 1783-1909,
on the listed Web page. Also known as the Warrant files, these manuscripts
reflect the various preliminary stages in the granting of headright land. In
addition to a few other odd papers, the following types of documents are
included in these files: warrants, vouchers, certificates, petitions, and powers
of attorney. The files are arranged alphabetically by surname with an
individual folder containing all papers relating to any one name
regardless of the location of the land.
