Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing genealogical and historical data for the free use of all researchers.

We are sorry that we can't do any individual research for you.  We just really don't have the time or the resources to accomplish that, but what we can do is try to provide the data and history to help you along the way. At the same time we hope you will share what information you have that we might all be able to help each other.

We are in need of Alabama County Co-Ordinators Its challenging, its very rewarding, and its a great group of people to work with. If interested in being a County Host please check out our Volunteer Page.

You can be a great deal of help with this website. We are looking for all the regular information such as Biographies, Deaths, Births and Marriages. There will be the native Indian history of the area that will be of interest to a lot of people. Of great importance would be the Pioneer Families of Lauderdale Alabama. Tell us about your family as they traveled the land and found the roots they wanted to plant here in Lauderdale County. There is a special section on this website for the pioneer folks who paved the way and made the county what it is today. This is the type of information that will set this County Web Page apart from all the others.
