#GA Immigration Records. Effingham Co. GA Wills, Marriages, Births, Baptisms

Effingham County Records

New Jerusalem ChurchEffingham was created on February 5, 1777 from the colonial parishes of St. Matthew and St. Phillip. The county was named after Lord Effingtham, an English champion of colonial rights. Its first settlers were from Austria who had suffered religious persecution under the Catholic Church and was given two weeks to remove themselves from the country. They spent two or three years trying to obtain passage from England to America and succeeded when General Oglethorpe heard of their plight and had them brought to the colony of Georgia. Many of the original records at the Effingham County Court House remain intact. When tracing families in this county please refer to the Colonial Records of Georgia by Candler as well as the Saltzburgher books found in most regional libraties.
