      Subject: 1867 Voter Registration database


      The most recent addition to the website of the Alabama Department of
      Archvies and History is the database of Alabama's 1867 voter
      registration.

      The database is being created by staff members, as time permits, from
      the entries in the 131 volumes of the 1867 Voter Registration Records
      maintained by the Alabama Department of Archives and History (ADAH). The
      volumes are significant genealogical records as this is the first
      statewide government document that records 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.
      Currently voter registration information is availble for Wilcox and
      Winston Counties.
