"Where your Journey Begins"

Executions (Before Lethal Injection)

The topic of executions is not the most pleasant in researching genealogy but is a part of our history. We all have an ancestor in our family tree that seems to have vanished and maybe one can be found here.  If you happen to come across one of your ancestors or know of a story to share please send an email to our State host.  Make sure to check the old newspaper microfilms as the execution was probably printed in the newspaper!  

Georgia Genealogy Trails gratefully acknowledges the source of information below as coming from Rob Gallagher's website BEFORE THE NEEDLES, which contains The History of Executions In America Before Lethal Injection.
