      > This collection is of special interest for anyone doing research in the
      > Greater Birmingham, Alabama area. The earliest newspapers of Jefferson

      > marriage notices for some of the earliest settlers of Jefferson County and
      > neighboring counties. Later newspapers were published in the newly formed

      > newspapers in counties in North Alabama such as Madison, Lauderdale,
      > Cullman, DeKalb and Jackson.
      > This collection is also a value tool for anyone researching Alabama. The
      > Birmingham Iron Age included weekly columns, "Died In Alabama", "Married

      > Huntsville and as far south as Mobile.
