This County is available for adoption.

Our goal at Genealogy Trails is to help you track your ancestors through time and place by transcribing genealogical and historical data and placing it online for the free use of all researchers.

This is a continuation of our original, Illinois Genealogy Trails History and Genealogy Project and we are excited about this opportunity to expand into other states. We welcome your feedback and comments, and your data contributions.

If you think you might be interested in joining our group, view our

Any data we come across will be added to this site.

Charlton County was created from a portion of Camden County, Georgia by an act of the Georgia General Assembly on February 18, 1854. Additional lands from Ware County, Georgia were added to Charlton's borders by an 1855 act of the General Assembly. In 1856, an additional legistlative act redefined the Charlton/Camden borders again with each county ceding land to the other.
