Hall County Names Changed Legally 1800-1856
One of the problems facing genealogist is tracing persons whose names have been changed. In Georgia, alterations and changes in names and legitimizations were made by legislative act until the Act of March 6, 1856 which gave this power to the Inferior Court of the County Residence. This Act established the procedure for adoption to make sure the child could secure an inheritance. The information listed is all the Hall County name changes with whatever information was included for that person. Some name changes did not include a County residence so double check the info listed here with the originals.
