Freda Turner recently donated several books to the Coweta County Genealogical Society’s research library in Grantville.

Turner – originally from Troup County – now lives in Henry County. She is the compiler and editor of nearly 20 books, which include family history and miscellaneous records from Henry, Heard and Greene counties in Georgia.

Turner was a member of Henry-Clayton County Genealogical Society, and it was for them that she first did her research work.

In 2012, Turner received a Lifetime Achievement Award for her dedication to abstracting and publishing information for genealogical research. The award was from the Georgia History Records Advisory Board.

Turner worked for Fulton County Civil Court for 26 years, retiring in 1983. She also wrote, using a pseudonym, two true-life stories as a result of her work with the court system.

In addition to books for the CCGS library, she has donated her library of novels and non-fiction books to the society. These books will be sold along with others at the Puckett Station Arts and Crafts Festival on July 4 in Moreland as a fundraiser for the society.
