This is a wonderful library. It is a "must

older Coffee County families. The
library has a special genealogy room
and they have a growing number of
family files for you to peruse, besides
the usual Georgia resources. Please
be sure and call ahead to make sure
there is a Librarian on duty.

Here is a listing of the Coffee County Funeral Homes. Because

segregated. Therefore, I have listed the Funeral Homes
