Genealogy Queries from the 1940s may provide links to researchers

Below are some Genealogy Queries published in The Alabama Historical Quarterly, Vol 2, No. 3, Fall Issue 1940 that may be of interest to family researchers today. I imagine the people and addresses listed are no longer valid since they are from the 1940s and the inquirers have probably passed away, but they could provide links to relatives.
