This work is a comparison of all loose marriage licenses from 1805-1850 on file at the Georgia Archives to the marriage licenses recorded in the book.  There are some remarkable differences in the two records in many cases.  Within these approximately 1,800 records, the researcher will find that the author has laid these marriages out in chronological order giving the names and dates of marriage, and primary and secondary source of data.
