Index of Available Birth & Death Register Records for the state of ALABAMA

compiled by: Lisa R. Franklin RN

Alabama's law requiring the recording of births and deaths did not begin until the year 1908. However, before that time, some counties did keep registers of births and/or deaths for the county. Following is a list of some of the surviving registers of births &/or deaths listed alphabetically by county, as available. These volumes are unindexed, however, they can be accessed via the Alabama State Archives. The majority of these records provide the following information: Birth Register Entry- -birth date, sex, race, town of birth, mother's name, mother's birthplace (many times stating town if inside county or county if inside the state), father's name, father's birthplace (town/county: see previous note); Death Register Entry--death date, sex, race, place of residence; place of death; place of birth; parents names (some counties only).
