Try searching the query surname Cowan to see how it works.

Once your query is posted on the AP website, it will be posted on the website and AP Facebook as well as personally emailed to over 10,000 Alabama Pioneers newsletter readers in the next newsletter.

But don’t stop there.  Once you have your designated page on Alabama Pioneers, share it with everyone you know by clicking on the Facebook, Twitter and Email button on your query page and encourage them to Share your post with others.

The Rules below must be followed explicitly to have your query posted in the newsletter and on Alabama Pioneers:

  • Email your query to [email protected] with the subject line Paid Query and email address you will use to make a payment.
  • You will receive an invoice for payment from Alabama Pioneers. Once the $5 payment is made (online only), a confirmation notice will be sent by email with the date of posting for the newsletter and on the website.
  • The query must not be any larger than 100 words or 400 characters, whichever is lower and written exactly as you want it posted.

Just to say I did find info on the John Moore who died 1893 in Lawrence County, AL.  Sadly its not my ancestor but I now know about him.  AND, I also found info on Richard Moore so both of those queries can be discontinued.  Still looking for info on James Matheson Moore.  Thank you for your help.  The service you provide is appreciated.  Sue Mullane
