The Search for Gold

There is more than mineral deposits of gold in the land.  The human family has hoarded gold and silver since day one.  Where? Why, in the ground, of course.  During the War Between the States, while the Confederate Gold wagon was following the armies and ultimately lost, southerns buried their wealth stores in flower gardens.  The idea was, after the war, to return and dig it up again. But towns were destroyed, people killed, and circumstances prevented the return. I had a family who buried some gold and silver coins near their home in Macon, Georgia.  It was not until about 1888 that family members remembered the location of grandpa's hiding place, and returned to fetch it. Of course, the amount was greatly exaggerated over the years, however, it did exist and was finally dug up!  Before paper money was printed, people put their coinage in purses, carpet bags, safes and even store houses.  During the Roman era, it was the custom that a prominent member of the family retain the family wealth and valuables under lock and key.  In Jerusalem, officials in high offices (such as mayor, etc.) had as many as fifty men to guard important possessions. Consider the number of ancient wars which transpired throughout history and the gold which the Spanish took out of South America. Even today, coins of eight wash upon the shores from old ship wrecks.  People have always been very busy gathering treasure and minting coins.  Thus, it is not a bad idea to take a metal detector along when you go hunting for the ancestral home.

The Past Awakes


Finding clues which lead to the next step in the ancestral lineage resembles the awakening to a beautiful day filled with sunshine and blooming flowers. The good weather invites trips to the old ancestral home, or the search for more ancient dwellings.  It is always fun to take the children on these types of field trips, to help them identify the past.  Actually, it is a memory which we researched and provide for them.  There are lots of beautiful pictures which are available of the countryside.  Perhaps you found the old site and some barns, whatever.  It is all good for memories. Do not forget to visit local court houses for essential information to tracing the lineage further back in time. Georgia Pioneers has created images of court house records in Georgia and it is easy to view them online.

Genealogy: Images of Warren Co. GA Wills and Estates


Warren County Wills and Estates



Warren County was established on December 19, 1793 by an Act of the Georgia General Assembly, and was created from parts of Columbia, Washington, and Wilkes Counties. It was named after General Joseph Warren, famous general killed in the Battle of Bunker Hill. At first, the courts met in the home of James McCormick and in 1796 in the home of Sterling Gardner. An Act dated February 9, 1797 designated a lot on Gardner's plantation as the permanent county seat and became the town of Warrenton. In the front of the Warren County Will Book 1798-1807 is a series of administrator's appointments, etc. This information is scarcely readable, but is included below.

    Yesterday is a blink of the eye

    Blink your eye and behold yesterday
    Since the days of candles and cooking in the fireplace, our country has come a long way.  Perhaps it was Henry Ford's invention of the automobile engine or the telephone which ignited an era of technology. One good invention calls for the next level, and so on.  Perhaps Americans are spoiled in this respect, as they remain many third-world countries who have not caught up.  Yet, the internet spreads across the globe in a speeding light sharing information and knowledge to remote civilizations.   As the seeds of researching our personal roots are sprinkled across the internet plain, ITT is a boon for genealogists.  Just as ancient records become translated and open doors to the past, so does the sharing of personal information.  Had archeologists been able to share the ancient records of the old world glyphs and translations over the internet, we would have a larger imprint into the past. The ancients were not as ignorant as scientists thought.  They left the written record, whether as hieroglyphics on buildings or papyrus, copper, gold,  carvings on statues, etc.  It is my opinion that each civilization left behind its own history, in some format or the other. All that we need do is find it.  And that is exactly what genealogists of this generation strive to do.  Find the information necessary to assemble the genealogy. It is often a daunting task.  Read the old court-house records is an essential step into acquiring the facts.  There was no census before 1790, but people purchased and sold land, married, died...all of this is contained in the court houses.  When that resource runs out, one goes to the country of origin and combs through the parish registers.  Georgia Pioneers has scanned and catalogued many county records to assist genealogists in finding ancestors, and there are more to come. This is an active website, and additional information is frequently collected and added. The census is not enough. One must always research county records during any possible era. In America, county records commenced during the early 1600's. Georgia's records began in 1733.
