The original 1976 edition was arranged alphabetically by counties and the alphabetically by surname, making it extremely difficult to use when searching a given individual or surname. Southern Historical Press has completely revised this book, arranging all persons listed in alphabetical order by surname, making this book now much easier to use. The gold lots are found in present-day: Union Lumpkin, Forsyth, Cherokee, Cobb, Paulding, Cass, and Floyd counties. The Index for this volume contains the names of approximately 41,000 fortunate drawers.
