Folk Medicine Legacy

This short survey is to gather information on the traditions and history of folk medicine in North Georgia and surrounding areas that our families used to treat themselves at home or in the community. The information will be used and shared for the benefit of all our community. How it is shared (booklet, article, other?) will depend on the type of information gathered. Be sure to provide your email address if you want to be on the mailing list for the results.

Folk medicine was (is) the people's medicine. Mothers, grandmothers, neighbors, community herbalist or root doctors held the knowledge for common sense remedies and healing. Some of this knowledge and practice continues today in a few families. Much of the knowledge is lost with the passing of every generation. This survey is meant to collect as much of that information as possible, and to give credit where it is due for the keepers of this information. Please ask around in your family for further details and share here. Complete the form as many times as you need as new details are gathered.
