The Advantage which Genealogists Have over Historians

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.
