    Thanks Kathy. That may explain a few things. I hope to get to AL in the next few months; hope I can dig thru some of those records and see what I can find.

      _dunk1432@..._ (mailto:dunk1432@...) :
      probably in
      Jackson, DeKalb, Jefferson or St. Clair counties of AL. Just wondering if
      any of
      these county courthouses were destroyed later and the record I'm looking
      for
      destroyed?>


      i was in the jackson county courthouse basement in 1981. some of the
      records were in disarray.

        The loose records in the Courthouse basement were flattened and scanned by the LDS a few years ago with the help of the Jackson County Historical Association. Ann B. Chambless can give you the full details. I do not believe that any of the records there were marriage records. Mostly I think they were records dealing with land and estates. I don't think any of the records they scanned are on the internet, I did not find it on the LDS Library's list for Jackson County's records.

              Hi group, I have been going thru microfilms from Jackson Co. over the last month. WOW WOW and WOW.  I ordered probate records and probate minutes on my Williams line from LDS. It has helped my reseach a great deal. The undertaking of getting the material for photo copying them on microfilm must have been a massive project. Thankyou Ann.

                      I just recently transcribed probate records for Andrew McCoy from 1868-1870, 1872-1874, and 1875-1875. I ordered the microfilm from the Salt Lake Family History Library and read them at the local Family History Center. It was not easy reading and understanding the writing style and of course the age of the records were somewhat faded. It worked with a good microfilm reader/copy machine. I now know more of Andrew McCoy’s life and family. They will be part of my book on my McCoy’s

                      It was well worth the effort.

                        Hi!

                        Were any of these records pre Civil War? I thought I had been through all pre Civil War Jackson County LDS microfilmed records. I hope now that I've missed some.

Chambless can give you the full details. I do not believe that any of the records there were marriage records. Mostly I think they were records dealing with land and estates. I don't think any of the records they scanned are on the internet, I did not find it on the LDS Library's list for Jackson County's records.
