Selected Resources for Alabama Counties: A Subject Guide
The staff of the Southern History Department is proud to unveil a project that’s been one year in the making. Our new subject guide, Selected Resources for Alabama Counties, is now almost complete. Each of Alabama’s 67 counties is represented with its own page and listing of library resources. The goal of this project was to create a user-friendly way for patrons and staff to see at a glance what books and records are available in the library for each individual county. Each county is divided into the following categories: Cemeteries and Church Histories; Census Records; City, County, and Family Histories; Court Records; Death Records and Obituaries; Land Records; Maps; Marriage Records; Military History and Records; Newspaper Abstracts; and Periodicals. For each category a list of titles is given with links to the library’s online catalog.
Having all of the counties and their resources listed in one place is helpful to anyone who is planning a research trip. Since most genealogy sources are location specific, a researcher who is considering a visit can know in advance what we have to offer for a particular county. While not meant to be comprehensive, each county guide is meant to give patrons easy access to most used county records and histories.
