Overview

Searching for your Alabama ancestors? Looking for historical facts? Dates? Events? This book will lead you to the places where you'll find answers. Here are hundreds of direct sources -- governmental, archival, agency, online -- that will help you access information vital to your investigation. This comprehensive reference book leads to the wide array of essential facts and data -- public records, census figures, military statistics, geography, studies of African American and Native American communities, local and biographical history, Internet sites, archives, and more. For the first time Alabama researchers are offered a how-to book that is not just a bibliography. Such complex sources as Alabama's biographical/ genealogical materials, federal land records, Civil War-era resources, and Native American sources are discussed in detail, along with many other topics of interest to researchers seeking information on this diverse Deep South state.
