Smith Papers by Jeannette Holland Austin

Having a Smith in my family has caused a bastion of genealogical research for many years searching for clues, any clue. Luckily, I discovered some unexpected county records, but only because I diligently search all of Georgia's counties for Smiths. This ongoing life-time project now demands an update of the Smith Papers formerly published ca 1985. Included in the family sketches are (actual) documents, such as wills, etc. Occasionally someone sends me a family photograph, and those are also included. Perhaps you will recognize some of these people as your own. I hope so. Also, added are photos and videos of the area and other relevant items, where possible. Researching the Smith name is an intense project. I suppose that we all give up at certain research levels. My personal ancestor is Alexander Smith who died in Warren County ca 1823. Before that, I believe that he came from North Carolina, but have been unsuccessful in proving this theory. There were some very old Alexander Smiths in Wilkes County. One of them had a son, Alexander. This could work (age-wise), but no records to establish a true connection. So there we are.
Most of these sketches are dealt with by families, for reasons of connecting the dots.
