ADAH Collections to be Scanned

The Alabama Department of Archives and History (ADAH) works daily to expand the number of items from our collections that are available as digital content on the ADAH web site and on other sites. In providing this material, we want to ensure we create quality images and quality information about the images so researchers can find exactly what they need. To this end, we have ADAH staff, volunteers, and commercial partners creating and describing content.


One note regarding the availability of Birth, Death, Marriage, and Divorce Certificates. The ADAH does not have these records in its collections. These records are maintained by the Alabama Department of Public Health, Center for Health Statistics, and the sales of certified copies of the certificates fund the operation of the Center. Copies can be requested at: http://www.adph.org/vitalrecords/.
