Glynn County Court Record Information

Special Note:  The probate court can no longer allow people in with scanners, nor to look through the old records and Xerox them yourself.  You will now have to submit your request in writing, and one of the clerks will have to look up the records for you.  The only records you can look through are the books that are already microfilmed and reprinted in reduced size books. 

However, the clerks are VERY understaffed, and do not have the time to put into requests.  You may find yourself waiting for a long period of time, and being charged a minimum $5 fee just for one copy.

DO NOT send a list of people to be searched for nor a list of records to be copied, especially if you do not know where exactly the record is located.

Be sure to put the office, i.e. Property Records, Superior, etc.

GLYNN COUNTY PROBATE COURT HAS MOVED!
05-13-2012 Update

Glynn County Probate Court
701 G Street
Brunswick, GA 31520
(912) 554-7231
Monday-Friday 8AM to 5PM

Many of these records have been microfilmed by the LDS Church [click on the Family History Library Catalog at the top of the screen to search their holdings], and are available through them by visiting your local LDS Family History Center and renting a copy of the film.  There is also a roll of film for Marriage Books A, B, & C in the Brunswick Public Library.

The upside, the courthouse will be scanning the ancient records themselves over the next couple of years.  These records will also be available online.  This is to help prevent further deterioration of the ancient documents from handling and abuse.

The Brunswick Advertiser & Appeal; Saturday 4 June 1881; pg. 3 col. 3

COUNTY RECORDS GONE—In the recent conflagration, the books and records of Glynn county were burned to ashes, except books N and T, which were not in the Clerk’s office at the time of the fire. Many of our people condemn our Clerk for having his office other than in the Court House, etc. If we are rightly informed, the law allows the Clerk to have his office anywhere within one mile of the Court House. The trouble, as we see it, consisted in the inability (real or supposed) of the county to have a safe for the reception of these records. Had we had such an institution and our Clerk been required to keep the books therein, they would have been all right to-day. But they are gone and we must do without them as best we can.
          LATER—From Mr. O’Connor, the Clerk, we learn that of the books burned those from A to H were those lately transcribed from the old ones, and that the originals are still in his possession.
 


McIntosh County Court Record Information

This page is dedicated to records found in the county courthouse.  However, McIntosh County has had very bad luck with courthouse fires, most of the early records are gone.

The courthouse was first burned during the Civil War, when the whole town was set ablaze.  Then a second time in the early 1870s.  From 1872 up to present, many records can still be found.  Some of the early records were re-recorded from known information and documents in personal possession of the townsfolk.

This page is dedicated to the public court records that have been transcribed by myself or others.  Many of these records I have actual images of in my collections.  If you see your ancestor's name, email me and I might be able to provide you with a scanned image of the document.

To transcribe records from the courthouse would be a time consuming job, as the majority of the early records are in storage and special trips have to be made to retrieve them.  I have picked various books and papers that were still located in the courthouse and were of an unusual nature.  I am still working on transcribing records, but not at a solid pace, just when I have extra time.

I have divided this page into sections concerning the records involved, not where they are located.  Most of these records can be found in probate court, the deeds and property records are found in superior court.

You can write to the courthouse for copies of any of these records at a cost of 25 cents per page and if you want it certified, it will be an additional $5 per record for certification.  PLEASE provide the book and page numbers when mailing requests to the court house.  The clerks do not have time to go searching for things.

Due to privacy issues, adoption records can not be opened or copied.  You will have to petition the court to open the record, even if everyone has already passed away.
