Cost of Vital Records Going Up in Georgia (& a Follow Friday)

I saw this news item on the Columbus Public Library Genealogy & Local History blog: "The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that the board of the Georgia Department of Community Health approved the increase on Thursday, with the price going from $15 to $25."

This is effective July 1st.

By the way, this little known gem is full of useful information such as this. From their heading: "The Genealogy and Local History Department serves as the Chattahoochee Valley area’s primary repository for genealogical and historical research materials. Located on the second floor of the Columbus Public Library, the Department offers researchers over 25,000 print and microfilm volumes of genealogical and historical materials."

The blog archives go back to March of 2006, and the topics are of a wide variety. Anything pertaining to the history of Georgia and surrounding states is worthy of their attention, and they make a special effort to bring it to yours.

I highly recommend them as a "must follow." --> Columbus Public Library Genealogy & Local History.
