Jordan's Journey is something new to the world of ancestry. It's a genealogical mashup incorporating photography, writing, design, research, and more. Gone are the boring register reports and dry descriptions found in genealogical tomes of old. This book takes a new approach, fusing together the creative and academic in a way that breathes new life into family history.
Equal parts genealogical memoir, art photography, and local history, Jordan's Journey pulls you in with a rich and immersive experience. With more than 75 original photos by the author, as well as over 150 vintage images, Jordan's Journey invites you on a trip into the rural south of yesteryear.
The book traces the major family lines of Pope, Jordan, Scoggins, and Holcomb, along with the associated families of Clement, Love, Robbs, Goodson, Visinand/Whisenant, Anderson, Chapman, Lawrence, Rambo, Hawkins, Ward, Keown, and Cavender. Other allied families are discussed, as well as general local history of the Armuchee Valley region of northwest Georgia.
