U.S. Government - Works Progress Administration - County Surveys

Identifier: 044-02-001

Scope and Contents

Included in this series are papers of various kinds concerning the county governments of Georgia and the records found in their offices. In addition, there is also a little information about other records found in the counties. Most of the papers were compiled by the field survey teams and were used in preparing the Inventory of the County Archives of Georgia series (see RGSGSERIES 44-2-9, Historical Records Survey Publications). Information on the governmental offices includes not only those offices usually associated with the county government but also such offices as the county Agricultural Agent and Home Demonstration Agent and offices that operate away from the courthouse, such as the Justices of the Peace. Also, information was gathered about offices that no longer exist, such as District Courts. The amount and type of information varies from county to county and generally falls into the following categories: County governmental organization, County history material, County inventories, Courthouse description, Inventory drafts, Manuscript Collections Inventory, Maps and Photographs Inventory, Newspaper inventory, Rosters of County Officials, Transcripts and Miscellaneous. The material in this series seems to have been gathered between 1937 and 1942 but it is frequently difficult to assign a more definite date to many of the items included.
