Dear Ms. Causey,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Population Schedules for the 1930 Census in the Records of the Bureau of the Census (Record Group 29) but digitized records for Georgia have not been added yet. Therefore, we searched for James Johnson on Ancestry in the 1930 Census and located several that lived in Georgia, age 1 or 2, and whose father was also James Johnson. There may be a fee associated with using Ancestry but you may access it for free at any National Archives facility nationwide using a NARA PC. Many records in Ancestry are also available for free using FamilySearch.
The Georgia Department of Public Health Vital Records Office maintains birth and death records filed from 1919 to the present. Some counties may have older birth, death, marriage, or divorce records in their files, but county files only contain records of vital events that occurred in that county. Therefore, we suggest that you review Family Search’s websites for Georgia Births and Christenings and https://www.familysearch.org/wiki/en/Gwinnett_County,_Georgia_Genealogy; and https://www.vitalrecordsus.com/georgia-gwinnett-county.html to request locally held information about your grandfather James Johnson, Jr, and his father, James Johnson, Sr.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
