1895 STATE CENSUS, NASSAU COUNTY, FLORIDA. 230 Pages, 8 1/2″ X 11″, Full Name Index. So far as is known, this was the first copy found of the 1895 Census taken in Florida (Marion County has since been located, all other counties are missing). It is particularly important since the 1890 Federal Census of Florida is missing, and Nassau County in the Florida State Census of 1885 is also missing. The information listed in this publication includes names of all inhabitants, sex, age, relationship, marital status, occupation and place of birth. JGS copied and published this census as our Bicentennial project. This book is currently out-of-print.

1850 CENSUS, CLARKE COUNTY, GEORGIA. 173 Pages, 8 1/2″ X 11″, full name index. The 1850 Federal Census enumeration required the names, sex, age, occupation and place of birth of every person living in the household in addition to other details. This copy of the 1850 Clarke County Census (county seat, Athens, Georgia) follows this pattern exactly but omits details such as schooling, conditions of health, etc. Included are maps showing military districts and communities within the county. This book is currently out-of-print.


All are surname indexed. Published since January 1973, they are all currently out-of-print; the Society stopped publishing in 2007. As far as we know, the Allen County Public Library, P.O. Box 2270, Ft. Wayne IN 46801-2270 USA (Genealogy Department), has a complete run of the Quarterly. The form at their website will allow you to order copies of JGS Quarterly articles.

Members were encouraged to submit documents and articles for publication in the Quarterly; long articles may be serialized.

Book Reviews were published in the Quarterly when a copy of a book was received by the Society. After review, the books were placed in the Society’s Library.


The Society has published a Newsletter since 1985, currently six issues per year. On our newsletter page, you will find those newsletters that are open to the public. For the rest, you will find them in the Members Only area.


We no longer have a library and business office; therefore, we have stopped participating with societies in exchanging our Newsletters and Quarterly with their publications.
