Manning Surname Search, Whitfield County, Georgia, Reverse Deed Index, 1930s - 1950s, Pages 4 through 4 E

Manning Surname Search, Whitfield County, Georgia, Reverse Deed Index, 1930s - 1950s, Pages 4 through 4 E, "Man." This was a one-day search, and my notes could have been better. The pages were photographed in sections (hand-held cell phone), and patched together.

The Manning surname (along with other "Ma" or "Man" names) appears on index pages 4 through 4 E in the Reverse Deed Index Book. (In some cases, the page may not have been designated by letter, but I have included a letter to help distinguish between files and pages). There may be duplicate sections for closeups where a corner may not have photographed well. Some of these are a little out of focus.

The full-sized image files are available on Flickr (free, designated for public domain).
