Index to Alabama Wills, 1808-1870; by Alabama Society, DAR; Paperback; 180 pp; Published: 1955, Reprinted: 2005; ISBN: 9780806307657; Item # CF70D
This is an index to 9,000 wills filed and probated in Alabama between 1808 and 1870. A project of the Alabama Society, Daughters of the American Revolution, it was originally compiled at the suggestion of the Department of Archives and History of the State of Alabama. The actual compilation was undertaken by a team of DAR chapter and state committees and is based on wills filed in the Department of Archives and History. The index itself is a model of simplicity, giving, in alphabetical order, the name of the testator, the county of probate, the identity of the record source (usually a will book), the date of the book, and the page number; in sum, all that the researcher might require in securing further information from the original records.
