The Georgia Department of Archives and History has many volumes of Bible records that have been collected by the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR). Those that were transcribed from 1938 to 1948 are at the Family History Library (Family History Library microfilms 006975-84). Additional DAR Bible records for Georgia were filmed at the DAR Library in Washington, DC, and are at the Family History Library (Family History Library microfilms 848574-75). More Bible transcripts are found in the DAR collection mentioned in the "Georgia Genealogy" article. Some of these DAR records are indexed in E. Kay Kirkham, An Index to Some of the Family Records of the Southern States. (Logan, Utah: Everton Publishers, 1979; Family History Library book Ref 973 D22kk Volume 1; microfiche 6089183).

Another collection of original Bible records at the Georgia Department of Archives and History was microfilmed in 1959 and is at the Family History Library (Family History Library microfilms 204483-88). Many additional Bible records for the counties of Washington, Lee, and Bulloch are also available at the Georgia Department of Archives and History and at the Family History Library.

  • An important published book of Bible transcripts is Jeannette Holland Austin, Georgia Bible Records (Baltimore, Maryland: Genealogical Publishing Company, 1985; Family History Library book 975.8 D2a).
