GeorgiaGov Launches About Georgia

May 27, 2014
State bird - Brown Thrasher

Over the course of the year, the Governor's Office, our call centers and even libraries field hundreds of questions about Georgia: When was it founded? What's the capital? What's the state bird?  

Most of the time the callers are students working on reports for school; others are people from out of state wanting a bit more information about Georgia. 

We've tried to make this information easier to find from our site. A new section of GeorgiaGov, titled "About Georgia," contains basic information about the state — the history, an outline of the government and how it works, facts and symbols, and more research information from websites such as the New Georgia Encyclopedia

This section is designed to help us reach GeorgiaGov's main goal: To help you find information quickly and easily. If you have any questions or suggestions, drop us a line on Facebook or Twitter.
