Camden County Georgia Deed Book Records 1786-1881
Camden County Georgia Deeds, 1786-1881, is an extraordinary complete abstraction of Camden County Deed Books from 1786-1881, transcribed and shared by Tara Fields, from her website, The Crypt.
Tara Tutcher Fields, a native of San Francisco, California, has been a genealogist and historian since 1995. After moving to Georgia in the late 1980s, she wanted to find her own niche in historical research and so became involved in the local history of Camden and Charlton Counties, Georgia.
In 1995, she created the web site The Crypt: The History and Genealogy of Camden and Charlton Counties, Georgia ( http://www.camdencounty.org ). She expanded her web site to include marriage records, census information, family histories, works by other researchers and, cemetery records (10,000 burials and counting).
Tara’s latest projects are photographing all marked graves in Camden and Charlton [put online at The Crypt, Too ( http://www.camdencounty.org/crypt2/ )]. She also started a project to abstract every known slave deed in the deed books of the local courthouse in Camden. This project resulted in the book Human Bondage: Slave Deeds of Camden County, Georgia, which she has shared on her web site so that it could be freely downloaded.

Tara Fields hopes to expand her online collection to include more documents relating to slave and African American history. Freedmens records, slave censuses, and registrations of free African Americans are priority. Currently she is a student at the College of Coastal Georgia (Brunswick/Kingsland). Her goal is to teach college history.
Afriquest is honored and grateful to feature this remarkable young woman and her collective work on these pages. VIEW ENTIRE DOCUMENT
