MONDAY MUSINGS: Do you know about these FREE online databases in Alabama?

  1. A great free website is the World War I Gold Star Database – This database is being developed from the Gold Star files of World War I Alabama service people who died during the war or who had been awarded distinguished service recognition. The name “Gold Star” was derived from the gold stars awarded to mothers of service people who lost their lives. These files were created by the Alabama Department of Archives and History in the 1920s.
  2. Voter Registration is a wonderful way to discover the location of ancestors. The Alabama Department of Archives and History has a wonderful searchable database online. Be sure to check it out here.

ALABAMA FOOTPRINTS: Settlement: Lost & Forgotten Stories  is a collection of lost and forgotten stories of the first surveyors, traders, and early settlements of what would become the future state of Alabama.

  1. Can’t wait for this website. Will we be notified when this is up and running?

    1. It was working earlier. It may be down right now so I’d try again later. Sorry about the problem. You will have to check with the Alabama State Archives to see when it will be available again.

  2. I don’t see in this any way to access to database. What’s the file name please?
