Mary L. Jackson Fears, 'Slave Ancestral Research, It's Something Else,' is a good story of one person's ten-year search in Georgia records (mainly Taylor and Crawford counties) with plenty of examples, illustrated by reproductions of original documents. Written in an appealing personal style, readers are taken through Ms. Jackson Fears' trials and triumphs in search of her slave ancestors. Along the way, we learn much about the strengths, weaknesses and even pitfalls of various types of records. Although there are numerous useful illustrations, the quality of their reproduction is poor. This book is particularly useful to researchers in Georgia records, although there is much general applicablity to Southern records in general.
