We're up there in bankruptcies

Warren County and most of the counties around it ranked in the red for the rate of personal bankruptcies in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's county-by-county survey (see map at above link). We came in with 14.19 bankruptcies per 1,000 filings -- not nearly as high as Taliaferro County, with nearly 22, but not as good as Hancock and Wilkes counties, which both ranked just below 11.

If you're into genealogy ...

... and you've got roots in Warren County, or if you just plain want to learn more about the history of the county, you can go to the Warren County GenWeb page above and check out some of the resources there.

Even though my dad's family is from Emanuel County and my mother's family is originally from Greene County, when I looked back far enough, I had some ancestors who lived in early Warren County, too. Maybe the family has come full circle now.
