We are so excited to announce that the Alabama State Census , 1820 – 1866 record collection is now live! This is the second record collection indexed through the World Archives Project to go live on Ancestry.com. Thanks to your efforts, 478,375 names are now indexed and searchable for free on Ancestry.com.
A little about the database:
This database contains state censuses from Alabama for the years 1820, 1850, 1855, and 1866. Each of these censuses recorded the names of the heads of household and the number of other household inhabitants according to gender and age categories. Some years also included race categories and distinguished between individuals who were free and slave.
Thanks to everyone who contributed to this project, and keep up the great work!
