Georgia Archives - Administration - Colonial Records of Georgia (Publication)
Scope and Contents
This series consists of 39 numbered volumes of Georgia colonial and early state records compiled by Governor Allen D. Candler under authority of the Georgia General Assembly. The project of publishing these volumes began in 1904 and was finally completed after some major changes in the original plans in 1937. After the death of Governor Candler in 1910, the project languished for some years until Secretary of State John Wilson undertook, with the aid of the Works Progress Administration, to continue the project by having the State Historian and Director of the Department of Archives and History supervise the typing of 14 volumes left unpublished.
Volumes 20, 27 through 32 were published by the University of Georgia Press in the 1980s. Volumes 33 through 39 remain unpublished.
