OK, I'm after some definite help here with my own family history - I thought I'd got it all down right, but then chatting to someone else on another forum about family history they said there was a problem. Now my history re the law and black folk way back is beyond hopeless - so here's the problem... My black grandfather married a white girl in Atlanta, Georgia in the early 1930's - the guy I was talking to said that was illegal back then - is he right? If so is it most likely that they got married in another state then moved back to Georgia? Or is there even the possibility they just lived together and were never legally married? Unfortunately I don't know much about my grandmother as she died when my father was a small boy and my grandfather died a few years back - plus its rather a delicate question to bring up with my father as it could mean he was born illegitimate - plus he's the one who told me they got married in Atlanta when I was working on the black side of our family tree.
