The Heritage Room is located in the Athens-Clarke County library. We collect, preserve, organize, and make accessible resources about the Athens area, the state of Georgia, and the Southeastern United States.
Let us help you with your research!
On this day, we'd like to remind you about two newsletters from the Heritage Room that you can have delivered to your email Inbox.
Our Genealogy Events newsletter comes out at the end of each month. It includes events in the Athens area and from around Georgia related to historical research, events, people, and places; history- or genealogy-related exhibits and displays; as well as meeting information for area history and genealogy groups. Some items from previous Events newsletters included Historic Augusta loft tours, a lecture about the Kennesaw City Cemetery, topics for the Georgia Archives Lunch & Learn series, and workshops on writing and publishing genealogy. It's a great way to get a head's up on what is being offered over the next few weeks so you don't miss anything you might enjoy.
We will also have a Genealogy Tips newsletter that will be sent every few weeks with news of new resources, programs, or developments in the wider genealogy world. Recent Tips included information about the National Archive plan to digitize 180,000 War of 1812 pension records, the expanded Atlanta Historic Newspapers available in the Digital Library of Georgia, resources for doing Hispanic Genealogy, and ways to preserve all your research. It's an easy way to keep up with your hobby without reading dozens of blogs and websites, or catch items you might have otherwise missed.
