This book is an index to the List of Persons Entitled to Draws for the 1805 Land Lottery and is a new transcription of the data in 1805 Georgia Land Lottery, published in 1964 by Virginia S. Wood and Ralph V. Wood. This list represents most of the households in the state in the year 1803 and is an invaluable substitute for Georgia's lost 1800 U.S. Federal Census.
1805 Georgia Land Lottery Persons Entitled to Draws corrects major errors and omissions found in the Wood publication. Using the power of a computer database, this new publication of land lottery participants includes verified and cross-referenced data. No Georgia census index collection is complete without this book.
