Georgia Free Persons of Color. Volume II: Appling, Camden, Clarke, Emanuel, Jones, Pulaski, and Wilkes Counties, 1818-1865
Volume II in this series by Michael A. Ports contains transcriptions of the free_x000D_
black registers for the Georgia counties of Appling,Camden, Clarke, Emanuel, Jones, Pulaski, and_x000D_
Wilkes. Mr. Ports has arranged the contents of the record books in a series of tables, county by county and chronologically thereunder. A full-name index at the back of each volume provides for easy searching. Because the recording styles of the county clerks differ one from one another, or from year to year, the author has provided an overview of the registers he found in each county, references to any gaps in the registers, handwriting irregularities or peculiarities, and so on. In addition to the required information, a few clerks recorded the registrant├ó┬Ç┬Ös height, weight, skin color, and name of their guardian.
