Following General James Oglethorpe's initial settling of Europeans from England, Scotland, and the Palatine to the Georgia Colony and the dissolution of the Georgia trustees' charter, the British Crown offered substantial land grants to entice other colonists to settle and work the Georgia countryside.

As early as 1752, colonists from New England, Virginia, and the Carolinas poured into Georgia, bringing with them their families, servants, and sometimes entire religious communities. By 1775, these "frontier" settlements had established extensive coastal cotton and rice plantations. After the Revolution, Patriot veterans established homesteads by taking up land grants for their war services. During the early 1800s, Georgia employed a series of land lotteries to attract even more settlers. Once the federal government had "removed" Georgia's Cherokee and Creek populations during the late 1820s, the stage was set for a climactic state lottery of middle and western Georgia lands in 1832.

Set against the history of Georgia's advancing frontier, this unprecedented three-volume work, the outgrowth of one genealogist's professional lifetime of tracing Georgia family histories, sets forth the genealogies of 591 families, referencing tens of thousands of Georgia settlers. The families are divided into three convenient groupings: (1) those who settled prior to 1775, (2) families who first entered Georgia between the Revolution and before the Civil War, and (3) families that migrated to Georgia from Virginia, North Carolina, or South Carolina during various periods.

It is impossible to praise this new compendium of family histories too highly. Mrs. Austin's work is destined to be regarded as a landmark in Georgia genealogy. Scan the surnames of the main families covered, below, to learn if your Georgia ancestors are those who pioneered the Georgia frontier.
