January 18, 2001 INTRODUCTION This index of topics has been assembled to help researchers find specific topics in back issues of the "Journal of the Burke County Genealogical Society (Volumes I to XVIII). Under each category, the topics are listed alphabetically by key word or phrase. A particular topic may appear under more than one category, if appropriate.
For the most part, exact titles of articles are not used. Titles may be shortened or modified to better reflect the contents of the articles. For full-length articles or large tabulations of original records, no attempt has generally been made to divide the material into sub-topics. However, for "fillers" or short tabulations of original records such as newspaper abstracts, each included item is listed separately.
Note that the first few volumes of the Journal were not paginated, so I have arbitrarily assigned page numbers to these, starting with page 1 for each issue. Note also that the earliest volumes were given Arabic rather than Roman numeral volume numbers.
