Welcome to the Coweta County Genealogical Society
The Coweta County Genealogical and Historical Research Library is located at the corner of West Broad Street and Main Street in the old train Depot in Grantville, Georgia.
Our hours of operation are Tuesday – Thursday, from 10am to 4pm. We are also open on the first and fourth Saturdays of each month from 10am to 4pm. (Formerly we were open on the first and third Saturdays, so please make note of this change.)
We are excited to announce that we now have a phone which will be answered by volunteers during the research hours listed above. Our number is 470-215-4027.
Public meetings are held on the third Saturday of March, June, September, and December beginning at 1:30 pm at our research library in Grantville, Georgia.
We are looking forward to a December luncheon-lecture featuring Dr. Jeffery Wells, a college professor of history and sociology, who will speak to us about the western movement in GA during the 1820′s and 1830′s. He will particularly focus on land acquisitions made through treaties and land lotteries. Do you want to know more about what the land lotteries were and how Georgians accessed land through them? Then be sure to come to the lecture on Sat., Dec. 21 at 12:30. There will be a $15 luncheon prior to the lecture, 11:30 – 12:30, with the lecture itself being free-of-charge. Please join us at our library for this outstanding event!
Speaking of our hometown, Grantville – we want to give a big shout of THANKS to this town for helping us acquire a new heating and air conditioning system for our library. Those of you who haven’t been here in a while may remember days of cold or heat that made researching not as pleasant as we’d like. Now we’ve got a nice, steady temperature that makes for a more comfortable atmosphere plus it includes a humidity control. That means our books and papers are now in a more controlled environment. That makes a win-win situation!
We are working to improve the quantity and quality of information found here. Please leave us your comments on our Guest Register! This will take you to our “Contact Us” link above; here you can send us an email or get a phone number for an active volunteer.
