Alabama Genealogy Records

Many people today are interested in learning more about their past and their ancestors. As a result Genealogy is one of the most common terms in search engines on the World Wide Web. For those who are new to the world of Genealogy, there are many ways one can find information regarding their ancestors. Some of the most common forms of public records used for genealogy are: For Birth Records In Alabama this information becomes available 125 years after the date of birth. During this time, access to the certificate is granted only to the person, as well as certain members of his or her immediate family. Though the state of Alabama only started keeping a record of births in 1908, it is often to find information about persons born before this date directly through the county board. For Obituaries Finding Alabama obituaries is easier than you think once you know where to look. The Internet has made archiving and accessing older listings from a century ago simple, but it has taken a while for some of these directories to come online. One of the best ones, for listings in and around Florence, is the Florence Times. Not only can you scan their online archives, they have even set up a separate site that goes all the way back to 1890! This is one of the most comprehensive listings in the country and a great place to start looking for Alabama obituary records. Along with local state papers, the Birmingham Public Library has an online system that anyone can access from anywhere in the world and you don't have to be a card carrying member of the state library system, either. Of course, these listings are going to mostly be about Birmingham area death listings, but you will also be able to find listings for the rest of the state, as well. Alabama obituaries are significantly easier to find thanks to these massive and well maintained databases and at the time of this writing, these databases are completely free to use. For Marriages In Alabama, not only can you formally request a copy of this data, doing so online is as easy as searching for the bride or groom's name using a standard records lookup. Before you start research, however, it is always good to be familiar with specific Alabama legislation dictating public records. This information is available in Code 22-9A-21[1975].
