AL 1867 Voter Registration

01/5/05 12:13:15 vkn: The most recent addition to the website of the Alabama Department of Archvies and History is the database of Alabama's 1867 voter registration.

The database is being created by staff members, as time permits, from the entries in the 131 volumes of the 1867 Voter Registration Records maintained by the Alabama Department of Archives and History (ADAH).

The volumes are significant genealogical records as this is the first statewide government document that records African-American males living in Alabama.

Because no index existed for individual volumes or for the records as a whole, and because of the deteriorating condition of the records, in 2004 ADAH staff began scanning the documents and keying the data from each entry into a computer database.

When a successful search retrieves a name from the database, an image of the page where the entry resides will also be available for your use. Currently voter registration information is availble for Wilcox and Winston Counties.
