Even better! Thanks
You can search AAFA’s website from our homepage. At the bottom is a Find box. Put quotes around the name—“Andrew Jackson Alford”—and it finds 77 places where that name occurs on our website.
Even when it is not my line. (I descend from Job Alford’s brother Jacob) Anything ‘easy’ to find I already have, published, on-line, most manuscripts, etc. Sometimes it’s fun to “plow fresh ground” even if, as this case, it was already on the Alford website.
As Alicia observed, working back in time can be a challenge on the website, which does an excellent job showing descendants. But to find your great-grandfather, you really need to know how he descended from the early Alfords.
HINT for researchers on the Alford website – which I didn’t think to use earlier:
Use Google Advanced Search. And tell it to search just the Alford website. It looks like "Andrew Jackson Alford" site:http://www.alfordassociation.org/ The right link for Alicia’s search is at the top of page 2.
I know what you mean, the search is interesting, but the FIND is fabulous!
Thanks. I enjoy the search. …..even more when I FIND something!
What an amazing amount of info you found... I am in awe!
Even though this isn't my branch of Alfords, I want to acknowledge your response and detail information.
Just continues to show the generosity of spirit in the Alford family!

Alicia, I don't have anything on your Andrew Jackson Alford either.
I think I would have noticed already if you were among my
Family Tree DNA Family Finder matches, but have you
done that test yet? If you have already done it or have it done,
it would be interesting to see whether we are shown
as matches, as our lines are both supposed to be
in the Alford Lineage II (I think I am quoting that correctly
without checking back right now.), as my Alford cousin's
Y-DNA test put him in that group.
