The overlap between films 261-29 and 261-30 starting with Andrew Hodgins and ending with William Holcombe don't appear to be exact duplicates.

County Information

[Top of Page] [Microfilm] [Notebooks] [Books] [County records] [Index] [Bottom of Page]

Many types of information about Confederate soldies can be found in county records. The two most frequent types of information are the Confederate Pension Rolls and Confederate Rosters. The Confederate Pension Rolls (also called Confederate pension records) are a series of records listing the names of ex-Confederate soldiers and widows who received pensions from the state of Georgia. Soldiers are listed by name with company, unit, type of disability, years of support, amount of support, and in some cases the year of death. Widows are listed with years of support, amount of support, and in some cases the year of death. Some of the records contain additional information such as birth dates. The Confederate Rosters are lists of soldiers by the company in which they enrolled. There are many additional types of records listed below that are not described in this text because of the diversity of record type.

In addition to the information below there are lists of surviving Confederate soldiers and widows in the county tax lists. These lists cover the period from about 1900 to 1936, and are from most of the counties in existence during that time. These records are available for viewing only on weekdays unless special arrangements are made with the Archives staff.
