- Hello all,
It is nice to have a list for Jackson County. Could someone tell me if the
older newspapers are on microfilm. Although there may be more, the one I
would like to see is the Progressive Age.

The Scottsboro library has a nice selection of old local newspapers on film
I wrote to the Ala. Dept. of Archives and History in 2/1994 to see if the
Jackson Co., Ala. newspapers had been microfilmed. They responded that many
of the records including a number of newspapers from Jackson Co., Ala. had
been microfiled by LDS or the Genealogy Society of Utah in 1993. The
Archives will send you a copy of all the Jackson Co., Ala. records that are
microfilmed. The newspaper reels can be bought for viewing for $16.00 a roll
in 1994 from the Ala. Archives. In addition you can rent the reels from the
LDS library in Salt Lake City, Utah through their local Family History
Libraries in your area.
These are the dates furnished to me for The Progressive Age newspaper that
I also understand that Jane Boyd Roberts has been abstracting the death
notices in Jackson Co., Ala. newspapers and indexing the name and date of
death. These books are in the Scottsboro Library. Last October I believe
she had completed 12 volumes. I don't believe the index has been published
for sale but only for the use of the library.
Someone from Jackson Co. may be able to enlighten us further on the
obituaries index of the dates and the newspapers that are copied.
Hope this will help the researchers.
