Were your ancestors in Henry County by 1850? If so, you can honor them and identify yourself as a member of one of our first families. The Genealogical Society of Henry & Clayton Counties has a program to identify those early settlers and their descendants.
To become a member of this elite group, you will need to prove your direct descent from a family that settled in Henry County by 1850. There is an application to fill out which must be accompanied by proofs for each generation (birth/death certificates, census records, wills, etc.). If you have ever completed an application for a hereditary society, you will find this one easy to do. Information submitted on the application will remain confidential.
Persons who qualify for First Families of Henry County GA will receive a certificate naming themselves and their ancestor.
The cost to register your first ancestor will be $30.00 and additional ancestors may be registered at a cost of $20.00 each. A certificate will be issued for each ancestor identified.
