Glynn County Records--Supposedly the Glynn County Deed Records are all intact from the early
1820s up to today. A rumor was circulated that we did lose some
earlier deeds to a courthouse fire, but another story was uncovered that
it was not a courthouse fire, but a house fire that destroyed these deeds.
It seems that there was no mandate that the
records had to be stored at the court house. So this clerk kept his
work in his home office and his home caught fire, with some early
deed records, (records that were not recorded in any books at the
courthouse) and many early criminal and other Superior Court Records.. Therefore, many early deeds, or indentures, have been
lost. Several books were lost due to water damage, and general
theft. Luckily, a few of these deeds were indexed in the Grantor /
Grantee Books, only there is not book to reference anymore.
The deed books start off with
letters, A, B, C, and so on, then they go double letters, AA, BB, CC.
Then a number and a letter 1A, 1B, 1C, etc. You will find these
books on the first floor of the Glynn County Courthouse, and each book has
been indexed into two types of indices spread out over several books.
Theses indices are called the Grantor [people who are selling the
land/property] and the Grantee [people who are buying the land/property].
This makes your search easier, as
you can search for your ancestor buying and selling property. These
indices are not only for buying and selling land, but also for mortgages,
purchasing of automobiles, and more.
In some of the indices, you will
see, instead of the lettered books, a Volume and a number. These are
mortgage books that are located in the Superior Court office, which is right next
to the property records room. These books are where you will find
your ancestor buying a house, or an automobile, or horses, and many other
types of properties.
McIntosh County Records--The
original records for McIntosh County have been lost through 2 court house
fires. The first deed book available is Deed Book A where many folks
re-filed their original deeds and claims to land after the fires. An
index to the book "McIntosh County Georgia Deed Book A Research
Abstracts 1812-1876" written by Ann R. Davis, can be found here.
This book contains a synopsis of each deed from the original Deed Book A.
I have by no means, completely
indexed or listed each book, or the people within each book on this
website. What I have done, is listed the deeds that I have in my
collection, and as time permits, I will transcribe them on the site.
Eventually I will try to get indices for the early deed books online.
