I want to share this with you:
Who I Am Makes a Difference


My Certificate of Gratitude from Pea River Historical and Genealogical Society May 21st, 2005 ~  Thank you, PRHGS. For many years I enjoyed working the two Coffee County Websites and it was my pleasure. I guess my work was not as good as the new staff wanted. *shrugs*  No loss here for me. Thank you for the free time I now have to enjoy

USEFUL INFORMATION


Records prior to 1907 can be found at the Coffee County Courthouse. Records since 1907 are at the Coffee County Courthouse Annex.

The Elba Public Library has several older census reports and a list of Confederate veterans.

Birth and death records can be in-hand within 20 minutes at the Coffee County Health Department for a fee of twelve dollars.

I received news that the Pea River Historical and Genealogical Society was once located in the library of the Enterprise State Junior College, and that when the Society moved, there were many records left behind at the library. I have not researched this...if someone does check this out, please inform me of what you discover concerning this.



The Coffee County Courthouse Annex, Pea River Historical and Genealogical Society and Pea River Historical and Genealogical Society Museum ARE within five minutes walking distance of each other (no more than two city blocks)!!


The Library at Andalusia has all of Covington County's Census Records--I am not sure about Coffee. The Public Library at Troy has printed copies of several Coffee County censuses---and, of course, others on microfilm. They also have nearby counties. Our thanks to Galier Miller for this information.
