Most of the books reference early settlers of Alabama. Among them, you’ll find a transcription of Alabama’s only remaining 1820 census return, an index to thousands of wills, and a collection of courthouse records of important events (for example, births, marriages, land transactions, deaths, etc.). Some of the unique resources include a series of newspaper articles published between 1880 and 1899 on Alabama’s earliest families.
Mississippi settlers are identified in three volumes of court records that represent a virtual census for the state while it was still a territory. You’ll also find historical and genealogical information on Mississippi’s participation in the War of 1812. Finally, early settlers of Arkansas are identified in one of the most important works on early pioneers and prominent families called Pioneers and Makers of Arkansas.
