News - from the past & the present

Have you heard the latest news from Alabama Pioneers?

If you are one of the first one hundred charter members you can receive two books free, one when we meet our goal of 100 members and the second book when we reach our goal of 250 members.

We are giving away Books to celebrate the launch of our Patreon/Patron program.

When the Alabama Pioneers website was launched almost ten years ago, a reader described it as a “potpourri of what makes up Alabama” and now we have readers all over the globe. Our Alabama community has become quite extensive!

New Patron/Patreon Program

Recently, we added the Alabama Grist Mill podcast and today, with this added Patron/Patreon feature, we will be able to also converse with you about anything related to Alabama’s history.

Also, depending on your level of participation, you will have access to ALL material on Alabama Pioneers including PATRON ONLY posts. You will be able to share information, photos and talk or ask questions of other Patrons on the Patreon/Patron site.  Group discussion often help “break down brick-walls” in family research. Advanced level members can even post queries, share and converse with other members, and participate in drawings for free books as well as other benefits. We look forward to sharing more about this new program with you during the months ahead.

In a few days, our first edition of the Exclusive Alabama Pioneers Patrons bimonthly newsletter will be published with links to PATRON ONLY information on the website. Watch for it in your email.
