Alabama Voting Registers
To locate voter registers, search for the specific county using the Place Search of the Family History Library Catalog.
The Alabama Department of Archives & History created an 1867 Voter Registration Database on-line. Currently all entries for Wilcox, Winston, Walker, Tuscaloosa, Tallapoosa, Talladega, Sumter, St. Clair, Shelby, Russell, Pike, Pickens, Perry, Morgan, Montgomery, Mobile, Marshall, Marengo, Madison, Macon, Lawrence, Lee, Jackson, Jefferson, Jones (now Lamar), Henry, Greene, Fayette, Franklin, Elmore, Etowah, Dale, Dallas, DeKalb, Crenshaw, Conecuh, Covington, Coosa, Colbert, Cleburne and Blaine Counties are available.
The books for the following counties were severely damaged from mold: Dallas; Franklin; Lauderdale; Limestone; Lowndes; Monroe; Randolph; and Washington. Some information may be missing due to the extent of the mold damage.
The volumes are significant genealogical records as this is one of the first statewide government documents that record African-American males living in Alabama. Because no index existed for individual volumes or for the records as a whole, and because of the deteriorating condition of the records, in 2004 ADAH staff began scanning the documents and keying the data from each entry into a computer database. When a successful search retrieves a name from the database, an image of the page where the entry resides will also be available for your use.
