Dr. George Newsome's Research Papers
Posted by: Chad Williams (ID *****7534) Date: August 08, 2012 at 11:18:06
  of 1980

As many of you know Dr. George Newsome of Athens was quite possibly the most distinguished of all Newsom(e) family genealogist for the past century. It was a terrible loss when he died earlier in this century and most certainly a great loss that he died before he had written much of his long awaited book on the family. I contacted his son and widow to see if they had done anything with his large archive of personal research. Mrs. Newsome informed me that she had not and that she would leave his research to her children if they wanted it, but if not she might see if the University of Georgia would take it. I am sure that they would, as would the Georgia State Archives. I am going to send her a letter with my information in hopes that she will allow dialogue to ensue to see about at least getting access to view his papers or contemplate making these donations to the university or archives. This would be an irreplaceable loss if these papers were lost.
