Re: Welcome to jacksongenealogy UPDATED and INFO for Everyone
- This is the updated version of the
jacksongenealogy invitation. It contains much new
info so I thought everyone would like to see it.
You are invited to join jacksongenealogy a group
of over 300 people researching their roots in
Jackson County AL. When posting please be as
complete as possible, Who, When, What Event,
Where, however do not post the actual birth dates
of living persons, year only.
Please change the Subject line of the message
when you are posting on a new subject. List names
on the Subject line in CAPS. Listing what
Surnames you are researching at the bottom of
your message would be helpful.

There is a lot of useful info in the archives and
just may be that long lost ancestor.
Visit the ALGENWEB Jackson County Website and
jacksoncountyal.com site for additional info
about Jackson County including the address and
phone numbers of the Probate Court in Scottsboro
and what they have available. Copies of marriage
certificates and other documents may be ordered
from them at a cost of $1.00 per page and a SASE.
They would like payment with the request. There
is a link to old maps of Jackson County.
Visit the Group Home Site LINKS to download the
Guntersville Flooded Cemetery and Jackson County
Mega Cemetery Files. Also there are links to the
Madison Co. MS Ter. 1809 Census and 1810 Tax
List. There are many familiar Jackson County
names on the list. There is a Township and Range
Map of Jackson County there. Charlie McCutchen
has been adding new links as we find them. In the
future after we get the microfilm of the 1866
Special Census and have it transcribed and proof
read it will be posted there as well as at the
ALGENWEB Jackson County site.
Many of your questions will be answered by
exploring each link listed at the ALGENWEB
Jackson County website and the Group Home
website. Links to marriages, cemeteries, the 1830
and 1860 census images and an index of the 1850
census are listed at one or the other site.
Census lookups are usually answered within a day
or two by someone in the group.
Our Group is for researching our ancestors and
their history in Jackson County not for the
politics and religion of today. The fact that
your ancestor was a politican or minister of a
church and what church position or political
office held is of interest but not what his
politics or views where. There are other websites
The info from both this Group and the ALGENWEB
Jackson County are free.
