Slave Importation Affidavit Registers for Nine Georgia Counties, 1818 - 1847 by Dawn Watson

In December, 1817, the Georgia state legislature enacted legislation requiring all persons introducing slaves into the state to register with a local county court. Clerks in several counties created independent registers in which to record the resulting affidavits. While these affidavits are often overlooked by researchers, they generally include personal, identifying information about the deponents and the individual slaves that could be useful to genealogists and historians.

This new volume contains abstracts of slave importation affidavit registers for nine of the ten Georgia counties where such registers are known to be extant: Camden County, Columbia County, Elbert County, Franklin County, Jackson County, Jasper County, Morgan County, Pulaski County, and Wilkes County. Two indexes make the text easy to search and use.
