1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Jacki G on May 29, 2009
Format: Hardcover
I purchased this book because it contained an obituary for my paternal great-great-great grandmother, of whom I've been able to find practically no information about beyond a couple of census'. I found information for other ancestors for the time period listed in the title as well.
Since I was born and raised in Macon and most of my ancestors are from either Bibb County or the surrounding areas, (Houston County, Crawford County, Wilkerson County), I found it a valuable source for family members from those counties also. As part of my quest to learn all I can about family members of the past, I have set out to learn the history of the areas they lived in. I found this book helpful in that area also, because it has, marriage announcements, birth and death announcements for many of the prominent historical figures of Macon.
My only complaint about the book would be that I would have liked to have had MORE information than was given about those people I was interested in. For example: my ggggrandmother's obituary consisted of 3-4 sentences with the statement "(with short eulogy)" at the end of the obit. I would have liked to have the eulogy as part of the book. This was written on many of the obits throughout.
However, generally speaking I am satisfied with the book as a reference source for my genealogical library.
