To my fellow Yearwood/Earwood researchers:
I am working on a Yearwood Family History Book. The scope of the book is primarily on the GA Yearwoods, descendents of Andrew Yearwood in Habersham County, but about the first 25% of the book is on earliest Yearwoods in VA and NC. The style is a little different from many family histories in that I try to tell the story and give a historical perspective on the lives and communities in which our ancestors lived. I have included some estate inventory contents, agricultural statistics, summarized histories of local communities, and brief descriptions of cultural norms for the area in which they lived. There is also a chapter on Yearwoods in the Revolutionary War (John and William) and brief histories of the battles they fought in, and the circumstances that existed at the time of their enlistment. A similar chapter for Yearwoods in the Civil War has just been started. Of course, offspring, birthdates, and marriages are included to a great extent. My hope is that this initial volume will serve as a basis for further research that will extend to other Yearwood families.
Part of the book is a collection of Yearwood/Earwood family photographs from the 1800s and early 1900s. So far, I have about 100 pictures of my GA family and cousins, some of the TN Yearwoods, and some from Arkansas. Any photograph copies that anyone could share would be greatly appreciated. I would like to get as many as possible over the next 12 months. I can use photocopies, Kodak copies, or .jpg files. I will gladly reimburse for copy costs of 19th and early 20th century Yearwood photos.
I expect to finish the book sometime over the next year. My plan is to provide copies at cost to anyone interested. Please e-mail for further details or address information to send pictures. Please e-mail scanned files to email@example.com. Please include as much genealogy information with pictures as possible and approximate date the picture was taken, if known.
