Frequently Asked Questions


Below you will find the most frequently asked questions and the answers to them. I hope this will help!
Q    I am new to genealogy and would like to know where to get started in Bibb County?

  A    I would suggest that you explore "Resources". In this section you will also find many links to great sites for beginners. Also, just as
       important, you should post a query on the query board, join the email list and ask questions about your ancestors there. It has been
       my experience that the more places you ask the question, the better your chances of getting an answer.
       You can also check out this page: Tips for Research in Bibb County.

Q    I am looking for information about XXX.

          A    Unfortunately, if you don't see it on the site then I don't have any information about it. I do not live in Bibb, so am unable to
        check other  resources. 

Q    I don't see XXX church or cemetery on your list.

          A    If you do not see additional information, no one has sent that information to me to post.

Q    Can you send me a marriage license (or birth certificate, death certificate, court
      document) for my ancestor?

          A    No, I do not have access to records since I live in North Carolina. In most cases, you will need to check with the county courthouse 
         in order to obtain original documents. You can find contact information in "Addresses".

Q    Can you look some information up for me?

          A    If it's not on the site then I don't have the resource. Your best bet would be to ask on the email list. There are many people
        subscribed and it's possible someone has that resource available. You could also write the Library  to see if they have information.

Q The pictures are so tiny, I can't see them.

           A  They are "thumbnail" pictures. Click on the picture for a larger view.

Q  How do I submit information to you?

           A    You can type the information in an email to me or attach a document (.doc, .txt) to the email.
