Find a clue about your ancestor on Alabama Pioneers!
Each day we (Alabama Pioneers) discover new information about Alabama citizens buried deep in old newspapers and books. Typical search engines do not find this data because the type on the paper is severely faded and/or smeared. It takes the human eye to find it.
For example, local newspapers were often filled with comments like…
- James Collier came by with a 10 lb. tomato he has grown
- Susie Jones is off to Connecticut to stay with her aunt Sophie White while attending school.
Seemingly innocuous statements like these are invaluable to family researchers because they often provide the one clue needed about an ancestor living in a certain area or even explaining a family connection and why an ancestor moved to another location.
Alabama history stories – such as murders, scandals, deaths, etc.
students and graduates from schools, local social news, visitors in town, trips citizens make to out-of-town relatives
death and obituary notices from old newspapers
legal notices, divorces, probation of estates, etc.
local comings and goings about Alabama citizens from old newspapers.
