Alabama Towns and Counties Index

In the spring of 2003, members of AGS and other volunteers began a project to index a three-volume set of books shelved at the Birmingham Public Library. They contain a wealth of information about people, places, and events of interest to historians and genealogists. In May of 2005, a consolidated index of all three volumes was completed, printed, bound and donated to the library. Researchers will find the index invaluable when researching information found in “Sketches”. The Table of Contents for each volume is listed below.

We have provided you with a link to the original Index as well as the PDF version. You can either scroll to find the name you are looking for or hold ctrl F and type in the name. The volume and page number(s) are listed beside each name as follows: Name [vol], page(s).
