The bad news is, Kiokee Baptist Church’s earliest records from 1790-1832 no longer exist. The good news is, they were microfilmed before they were destroyed. The bad news is, there are only two copies of the microfilm in existence. The good news is, one of the copies is at Mercer University in Macon. The bad news is, these records have not been transcribed, abstracted or indexed and they need to be. The good news is, Mercer will release the film via interlibrary loan and the Columbia County, Library has a microfilm reader with a flash drive so I can download the images. The bad news is, it will probably take me quite some time to abstract everything. The good news is I will have the images at home so I can do them a little at a time.
