The Reconstructed 1790 Census of Georgia: Substitutes for Georgia's Lost 1790 Census
Author: Marie De Lamar
Paperback, 235 pages
The compilers of this work extracted data found in wills, deeds, tax digests, court minutes, voters' lists, newspapers, and other contemporary records--records roughly contemporaneous with the 1790 census--and they have identified about 15,000 Georgians who were living at the time of the 1790 census, thus creating a "reconstructed" census from substitute records. Counties covered include all of those formed before 1790, i.e. Burke, Camden, Chatham, Effingham, Franklin, Glynn, Greene, Liberty, Richmond, Washington, and Wilkes. Also covered are Columbia and Elbert counties, which were formed just after the census was taken.
