Digital Archives

The USGenWeb Digital Library (Archives) offers actual transcriptions of public domain records. You will find copies of census records, marriage bonds, wills, and other public documents. The Alabama files in the USGenWeb Archives are there because volunteers transcribed and submitted the data. Contact Carolyn Golowka, the state Archivist, to volunteer.

Tombstone Project

Register to transcribe - volunteer to walk and record - a cemetery in Alabama. The transcriptions are then stored in the USGenWeb Archives. You can help out by going to your local church or mortuary and getting a copy of their cemetery records. Partial cemetery transcriptions are also welcome! Additional information on cemeteries being transcribed can be found at the USGenWeb Tombstone Project home page.
