Photos and Other Documents

Our holdings have been cataloged into PastPerfect Museum Software, a collections management tool used by many museums and historical societies. We have scanned nearly two thousand local photos and other documents making them easily accessible by subject, title, name, date, collection name, contributor,  and folder name or storage container. The images, with descriptions, reveal Alpharetta and Milton County people, places and events as they appeared over many decades. We are subscribers to Family Tree Maker and Ancestry.com and can assist you in using these aids in searching and recording your family history.
