"Where your Journey Begins"

EFFINGHAM COUNTY, GEORGIA
WILL INDEX

   


This, one of the original eight counties, was formed in 1777 from St. Matthews Parish.
The old Court House at Springfield is full of interesting data about our Salsburger and German settlers.
The oldest book of Wills, "A," has been lost, and "B" begins 1791.
 All of the early records of estates and marriages are mixed in several old books that are not indexed.
Mrs, W. S. Wilson, a D. A. R/ of 117 Jones street Savannah, has abstracts of all the wills up to 1820 and about 500 marriages from the earliest to 1813.
From her the list of Testators was obtained.  
She also reports that the records of the old Church at Ebenezer, written in German, are still preserved and are in the care of Rev. Von Riser at Rincon, Ga.
