Genealogy BooksThe genealogical collection is housed in the Wilna Ham Davis Room. Here you will find genealogical materials about Georgia history and counties, local family histories and Worth County.

The microfilm collection consists of newspapers, census records, tax deeds and other court records. A microfilm reader/printer is available to print out documents.

Our newspaper collection spans over one hundred years. It includes: Worth County Local beginning April 1885 through September 1922 and Sylvester Local beginning October 1922 through March 2013. Also, the Sylvester Local newspapers have been digitized and are available online. The Worth County Historical Society along with the library and Georgia Public Library Service funded this project.
