Lost and forgotten stories

We have been chronicling Alabama history and sharing Alabama stories through documents, vintage books, and old newspapers for years in an effort to discover and “bring to light” the lost and forgotten footprints left behind by our ancestors. Like a virtual library, we share the information we discover via our website www.alabamapioneers.com, our books on Amazon.com  and now our FREE Podcast, “The Alabama Grist Mill“.



When we first started the Patreon/Patron Membership Community, we set two membership goals, one goal of 100 members and a 2nd goal of 250 members. When we met those goals, all Patron members downloaded a FREE ebook. Our 3rd goal of 350 has been a little harder to reach so we decided to do something special. When we reach 350 Patron members, ALL 350 Patrons will be able to download all three ebooks listed below for one month:

  1. WHERE DO I START? Hints and Tips for Beginning Genealogists with On-line resources
  2.   ALABAMA FOOTPRINTS Exploration: Lost & Forgotten Stories (Volume 1)
  3.  Vinegar of the Four Thieves
