Are you missing out on some of these stories? Read more to learn how to see them all.

As we conduct research for interesting stories to publish and/or post on, we continually find buried information, such as tax, jury lists, marriages, deaths, etc. that we knew would be of great benefit to family researchers, but it was hidden so well that most search engines would not find it. The jury list below is an example of the family research information we have collected.

We decided to collect this information rather than disregard it until we could decide how to best share it with researchers. We are now posting all this information in two ways:

  1. Individual volumes of books entitled Alabama Genealogy Notes by Donna R. Causey.
  2. And for FREE in individual Patron Posts on ..exclusively for our PATRON members.

Learn how to become a PATRON to access all this previously unpublished information for FREE as well as ALL stories and other benefits.
