Re: [AL] Accessible Archives for Alabama

You may want to try the Anniston-Calhoun Public Library

Main Branch
108 East 10th Street
Anniston, Alabama 36201
(256) 237-8501

Ask for "The Alabama Room" then ask for Linda Dukes.( A marvel of a researcher. Knows every resource in the South Eastern United States as does Tom, the Alabama Room librarian).
They provide excellent assistance to researchers, nationwide.

You may also try a membership in the Mobile Genealogical Society. They have a periodic publicatioon "Tap Roots" ( if I recall correctly) which is quite thorough. Back issues are generally available.

You might also try the archives at Auburn University, Samford University and the Birmingham-Jefferson Public library.

As a last resort you can always be in touch with Frazine Taylor at the ADAH who in her non-busy moments is QUITE helpful.


: Hello States Researchers: I am looking for recommended research
: sites for Alabama. I've visited the Afrigeneas state links for
: Alabama and many of the sites are excellent. But sources like
: the Alabama Department of Archives and History lists other links
: but with no searchable data information.

: I am looking for information on Mobile and its environs from the
: late 1770's to 1820. I would appreciate any suggestions.

: Please note that many archives are only open to Alabama residents.
: A big stumbling block for researchers living outside of the
: state.

: Thanks in advance.
