Mixon-Mixson Genealogy

DR.GEORGE E.MIXON of Ocilla, Georgia, has had some extensive research done on the Mixon-Mixson lines in England. The first vital statistics records there was begun in 1837. Their first census was 1817. Prior to that period it was an expensive and time consuming job to find any records on those who owned little or no property. Parish registers was about the only avenue for research. Before 1800 there were some 12,000 parishes in England and the records of many are now non-existent, many of those that are existent are not indexed. Searching those that are might result unsatisfactory.
