Maps at Alabama Department of Archives and History
A Tips, Tools, and Treasures Workshop on July 12

How do you find obscure small towns and communities in Alabama that no longer exist? How large was Montgomery County originally? What does “Township 3 North, Range 3 East” mean on a land deed, and where is it? These questions and more can be answered using map resources at the Alabama Department of Archives and History. Join us at 10:00 on Saturday morning, July 12, to learn about these unique resources.  Archivist Cynthia Luckie will describe the extent of the map collection, highlight treasures in the collection, and explain how these can aid genealogical research.

This is the seventh program in the workshop series, Tips, Tools, and Treasures, designed to introduce researchers to the vast array of research materials available at the ADAH, and to familiarize them with department services. Archives staff will present these programs the second Saturday of each month in 2008 from 10:00 - 11:00 A.M. The programs are free and do not require pre-registration. All programs will take place at ADAH, 624 Washington Ave., Montgomery. A complete list of topics and dates follows:
