Obituaries
 



Obituaries are great sources of information for the researcher.  Printed in local newspapers and often the bulletins and newsletters of churches and organizations, these often contain a brief biography of the deceased as well as a list of surviving family members and their city of residence.  Earlier ones are quite eloquent in their eulogy of the departed.

Houston County's earliest newspaper was the Houston Home Journal and it is still published today and is the legal organ of the county.  Copies have been microfilmed and are available at the Perry & Warner Robins Libraries as well as the Washington Memorial Library in Macon, Georgia Archives and the University of Georgia through their Georgia Newspaper Project.

Another excellent source is Cemeteries and Obituaries of Houston County, Ga, by Addie Howell.  This can be found in many local libraries.
 

Obituaries contributed to the Houston County GAGenWeb Project can be found in the
Houston Co. GAGenWeb Archives and on the Houston County Message Boards.
