Miscellaneous Alabama Newspaper Abstracts, Volume 1


Miscellaneous Alabama Newspaper Abstracts, Volume 1 - Michael Kelsey, Nancy Graff Floyd, and Ginny Guinn Parsons. This book contains abstracts from central Alabama newspapers published from 1823 through 1869 in the counties of Dallas, Green, and Talladega. However, the information is not limited to central Alabama and includes the counties of Perry, Autauga, Wilcox, Bibb, Sumter, Montgomery, Shelby, and Tuscaloosa. The abstracts consist of marriage, death, legal and slave notices, advertisements, and a great number of names in lists of letters left unclaimed in the local post offices. The lists of letters are of particular importance to the researcher as many of the names found in the lists do not appear on census indexes.
