- The deeds, plat books, wills, estate settlements, and marriage records are located in the Probate Judge's office in the Jackson
County Court house. The Probate Judge's office closes at 4:30 Tuesday through Friday but is open until 7:30 p.m. on Mondays.
The Scottsboro Public Library has copies of the printed Jackson County censuses for 1830, 1840, 1850, 1870, and 1880 as well as
census records from 1830 through 1910 on microfilm. The oldest extant newspaper is 1868, and the local newspapers have been
microfilmed by the Scottsboro Public Library and can be read in the library. This microfilm includes all extant papers published
in Scottsboro, Stevenson, and Bridgeport.
There are numerous items of printed material relating to families and individuals found in the genealogy section in the library,
including, but not limited to, church histories; church minutes; cemetery records; military rosters for the Florida Indian War,
the Cherokee removal, and the Creek Indian War; the Annie Coleman Proctor books covering families of many of Jackson County's
earliest settlers; copies of THE JACKSON COUNTY CHRONICLES published by the Jackson County Historical Association since 1975 with
historical essays about Jackson County and its people; numerous family histories; and other such books and reference material
which document the early history of Jackson County. The Library also has a lateral file for family material and maintains a
family name log in which patrons have entered the family names they are researching as well as their own current mailing address.
The hours of the Scottsboro Public Library are 9:00 to 5:00 Monday through Friday and 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Saturdays.

Where are the original county records located (time period 1850-1862)? Can
they be used for research? Does the Heritage Center have any genealogical
research material? Thanks!!
