Re: [Genealogy Research Club] Melson/ Sanford/ Harris -- Help?
- The health dept in GA says birth records are available starting in 1919 but in my state if you are a direct line descendant, the time period is waived. Also, do you know the church they may have gone to? You can look there for a baptism record.

Subject: [Genealogy Research Club] Melson/ Sanford/ Harris -- Help?
Date: Wednesday, April 22, 2009, 4:37 PM
I am looking for information about Jerome Brown Melson who was born in Manchester, Meriwether Co., GA on Aug. 18, 1915 -- I really need his parent's names (if that's possible). I already have all his death information, etc., but I do need to confirm where he was born and who his parents were.
Lewis Sanford was supposedly born around that same time and in the same area? I'm still trying to find out information about him period. According to reports, he and Mr. Melson left GA together and went up North in search of employment and better living conditions.
Mary Retter Harris was born June 15th, 1913 in Pensacola, FL. According to reports her father's name was James Harris. I don't know her mother's name.
Can you help me Please?? This roadblock is a tough one because the family is black and maybe American Indian? Need help, Please.
Thank you for your consideration,
