Georgia History & Genealogy Room

The Doris Coulter Hetzler Memorial Georgia History & Genealogy Room houses a special collection of books, microfilm, files, and other materials needed for genealogical and historical research. Although the collection focuses on Georgia (primarily Northwest Georgia), other states are represented. Adjoining states and migration route states are of interest to our researchers. The Walker County Historical Society collection is in our Georgia Room, plus local organizations and individuals donate materials. Jill Trubey manages the Georgia History and Genealogy Room.

If you would be interested in participating in digging up some family history, let Jill know.
You may call 706-638-4912 for more information.


Queries and Services

Our Family Files have information on the families of our area. You are invited to add to this file with your own research.

The Query Index, a 3" x 5" card file, is alphabetical by the ancestor's name, with name and address of the researcher. If you would like to add to this file, supply ancestor's name, date and place of birth, death, and marriage, and spouse's name (or whatever of these is known), your name and address.

Our Library will answer simple queries through the mail. Please make requests by mail or e-mail, not by phone. The fee for 30 minutes research is $5.00 (to the Cherokee Regional Library). Unfortunately, we are not equipped to answer queries on Native American ancestry at this time. Photocopies are 25 cents each, from paper or 50 cents from microfilm.
