Georgia Bible records[edit source]

This is my first Talk post, hopefully I'm doing it correctly. Under Did You Know?, The Georgia Department of Archives and History link is probably outdated, you used to go through the Secretary of State's page but this has changed. I don't have a new link for the Bible records collection but maybe someone else knows.--Mscentavo 18:20, 12 January 2014 (UTC)
