This website; wiregrassgenealogy.com, is a free repository of genealogical information about the pioneers who settled, lived, and worked in the Wiregrass area of North Florida and South Georgia. Wiregrass Genealogy is a site brought to you by a small group of dedicated Wiregrass descendants. We donate our time and sometimes money to provide a platform for our user community to aid their research for their Wiregrass ancestors. This cost-free site does not require you to sign up for an account, but doing so will open up a wealth of features not available otherwise — such as the Wiregrass Genealogy Forum.
To gain access to the Forum, start by "clicking" on the Forum Registration link on the Home page. Enter your name, email address and the family surnames you are researching, that will better identify you and your interests. This interactive resource is moderated and administered by our senior contributors. These senior members have many years of genealogy research and possess a great deal of knowledge of the Wiregrass area.
Other areas within this website contain pioneer (biographical) sketches and family trees. The data within these areas is carefully researched and contain references/works cited. We will accept user sketches and will publish your sketches if they meet our standards.
In addition, we provide links to other, free, resources, to expand your research. We do not (knowingly) provide links to "pay for use" websites. We firmly believe genealogical records should be free to all. The five owners of consider this site as a "free digital library".
However, we do accept donations (PayPal link below). All money received is reinvested into the site in the form of tools, hosting, apps, and more. A recent example is our purchases of hundreds of books in .pdf format. With recent donations, we have created the "Wiregrass Genealogy Library". These full length books can be downloaded to your PC by "clicking" on the Books link. Presently, we have books from Georgia, Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina. Many more are being reviewed for inclusion into our library. For additional information, please click on the books link.
Another recent addition to our site is the "Wiregrass Family Tree". This tree has over 3500 Wiregrass ancestors and growing; check it out and see if your ancestors reside within.
Finally, this is a new presence on the web and we are in the process of adding data as quickly as we are able, so you may encounter some of our growing pains, please bear with us. We will continue to add new features, links, and data to this site to aid in your research. We are not going anywhere! Donated money has been applied to our hosting service and we are paid-up well into the later part of the decade to date.
So, please explore our site and what we are offering to the user community. Let us know your thoughts via the "Guestbook" or email us directly, via the "Contacts" link.
