This special section of The Olden Times features old newspaper articles from or about Alabama history and Alabama families. They can be a valuable resource for genealogical and historical research.

You'll find old news articles, obituaries, birth & marriage announcements, ads and more. See the links at the top of this page to go to the Index of Names or to search this site.

Note: The Index of Names is always your best bet for finding a specific name!

Each of these was scanned from an original issue of an old newspaper in my personal collection. They appear in the order in which they were added to this website.
