Registers of Signatures of Depositors
the Augusta, Georgia, Branch
Finally! A source for African-American Genealogical Research In Georgia & South Carolina.
The Augusta-Richmond County Public Library is proud to announce the publication of the first volume of Registers of Signatures of Depositors in the Augusta, Georgia, Branch of the Freedmanís Saving and Trust Company, by Alice O. Walker. This book serves as a springboard for researchers studying African-American genealogy in the Augusta (GA)-Aiken (SC) area. Since the records begin in November 1870, they provide a critical link with the 1870 Federal population schedules. The Registers contain the following information on each applicant: name; date of application; place of birth; place brought up; residence; age; complexion; spouse; children; parents; siblings, and remarks. The remarks section typically includes the names of grandparents, aunts and uncles. This first volume covers half the existing records: November 1870 through June 1872. It is hardbound and contains over 700 pages, with a complete index, and an introduction, which includes a brief history of the bank as well as notes on the local records. In addition, 360 endnotes are included, providing cross-references to the 1872 Augusta City Directory, historical references, and corrections or additions to the original document.
Copies @ $35.00 each (plus $2. 50 shipping & handling)
Publication of this book was made possible by a grant from the R.J. Taylor, JR. Foundation.
