Another year has drawn to a close and I wanted to take this time to thank you for all your support and wish you a Happy New Year! As I look back over the past year, I’m amazed at Alabama Pioneer’s phenomenal growth. AP has had over 2,000,000 views by 239 countries and we have almost 71,000 fans on our Facebook page. This would not have happened without your support over the years. Thank you!
True image of Alabama’s citizens
My goal with Alabama Pioneers has always been to discover, preserve, document and share stories from Alabama’s rich history, and in so doing provide a truer image of her citizens than has previously been revealed to the world.
While some may assume that Alabama Pioneers is operated by many people, actually AP is still only run by one person— Me, and I truly appreciate your kind words of support and your understanding when I make mistakes, typos, etc. in stories.
Plan to remain a FREE resource
We have many exciting plans in the works for the coming year—great new stories, new ways of experiencing them, and an opportunity to become a part of the exclusive Alabama Pioneers community so keep reading, watching and sharing Alabama Pioneers on all your social media. Alabama Pioneers will continue to remain a FREE resource to discover stories about Alabama’s history.
Throughout the past year, many people have asked about ways they can help me with the website so I thought I’d offer a few suggestions.
Ways you can help

As we grow, costs of maintaining and keeping the website safe for readers continues to rise. Donations of any amount, no matter how small, are greatly appreciated.
Purchase our Alabama Footprints series of books, and ask your local librarian or retail store to stock them. The sale of books enables me to offset expenses of the website.
Our Alabama Footprints Series, starting with Alabama Footprints Exploration has now grown to seven books and covers lost and forgotten stories from the days of exploration in Alabama to when the Native Americans were removed, but we also have many other books. You can see them all at this link: Check out all our books here.
