The Hunt for Old Records Continues in Lowndes County (Georgia) . . . . .

Lowndes County Historical Museum One must go into the field in order to find lost records. By that, I mean that it is up to genealogists to locate that which was lost, or thought to be lost. Take the example of a researcher whose recent visit to the Lowndes Historical Museum in Valdosta, Georgia found some surprises. The Courthouse had burned down in 1890, however, someone grabbed a bunch of books and papers and took them home. All these years later, the grandchildren are bringing them to the Historical Society where they are being transcribed!

The first courthouse was a log structure built in Franklinville in 1828. When Lowndesville was named the county seat in 1833, the wooden courthouse was moved from Franklinville. The next year, a new courthouse was built in Lowndesville, which in 1837 was renamed Troupville. A new courthouse was built in Lowndes in 1842 which burned in 1858. After that, the county seat was removed to Valdosta and another courthouse was built, which burned in 1869.
