Since several Jackson County researchers have inquired, I am sending this email to the group site. For those of you who have previous knowledge of these facts, please excuse the repetition:
THE JACKSON COUNTY CHRONICLES from 1975 through October 1992 have been indexed. The last 12 years have not. Hopefully, some day an up-to-date index can be published.
A complete set (including extant indices) is available for public use at the Scottsboro Public Library, 1002 Broad Street, Scottsboro; the Scottsboro-Jackson Heritage Center, 208 S. Houston Street, Scottsboro; the Florence-Lauderdale Library in Florence, AL; the Stevenson Depot Museum in Stevenson, AL; the Alabama Department of Archives and History in Montgomery, AL; and the Huntsville Public Library in Huntsville, AL. The Allen County Library in Ft. Wayne, Indiana; the Franklin County Museum in Winchester, TN; the Family History Center in Salt Lake City, Utah; and the Wisconsin State Historical Society in Madison, WIsconsin renew their subscriptions each year and should have a complete set.
The JCHA would like to republish the back issues at some point in the future. However, no definite schedule has been established at this time.
The historical association meets on the third Sunday in January, April, July, and October. Members receive THE CHRONICLES (by USPS mail) approximately 10 days before each meeting. Annual dues are $10.00 per year and entitle members to the four annual publications. IF you decide to become a member of the JCHA, mail your check in the amount of $10.00 to P. O. Box 1494, Scottsboro, AL 35768. Please include your 9-digit zip code, as JCHA utilizes non-profit mailing.
Many Thanks to Richard Matthews for providing this avenue of networking and making research sources available to those who do not live in "The Switzerland of North Alabama - beautiful High Jackson."
