Gwinnett Lists & Rosters
The library at the Gwinnett Historical Society boasts a collection of some 1600 volumes ranging from published County and State histories to other society newsletters, individual family histories, DAR research, and military history. Below are lists of men from Gwinnett who served in the Civil War, 1904 pension lists, 1912 voter lists and Gwinnett land lottery winners from 1820 - 1832.
Gwinnett Survey of Homes
In 1978, Ted Bessette conducted a survey on behalf of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources of historic properties in Gwinnett which might be eligible for inclusion on the National Register. In 2005, the original documents were converted to digital by James Pugsley of the Gwinnett County Department of Planning & Development. This is an incredible snapshot of Gwinnett County before it changed and our thanks go out to him, Mr Bessette, and the DPD and DNR.
