The Ellen Payne Odom Genealogy Library Family Tree
The Family Tree - December/January 2003
Registry of Georgia Genealogical Works in Progress

The Georgia Genealogical Society needs your help with a new project. Recently it has come to the attention of the GGS that some way is needed for persons working on genealogical or historical abstraction projects to determine what research projects may currently be in progress or recently published.

The problem came to light when the GGS learned that a person had almost completed abstracting a Georgia county's marriage records only to find that publication of the same material was imminent. You can appreciate how devastating this kind of situation can be to someone who has worked many hard hours to complete a project.

GGS has agreed to become a clearinghouse for genealogical works in progress. The new project, called Registry of Georgia Genealogical Works in Progress, will be housed on the GGS website
( The Registry will include a form for submitting information on projects that are underway, as well as a list of works that are proposed or in progress.

We need your help to spread the word among fellow researchers. Please send this message to everyone on your mailing list, as well as anyone else you think might be interested. Post information on your website. Let researchers know that they can check at the GGS website before they begin an abstraction project.
