SoutheasternRoots: Genealogical and Historical Research








The following random obituaries and death notices have been transcribed verbatim from various 19th century and early 20th century newspapers in Alabama. Please bare in mind that the county newspaper in which the death was referenced does not imply that the person resided in that county.  All localities referenced are listed in parentheses beside the name. In some instances you will only see a tombstone photo, along with its transcription. Keep checking back from time to time, as more will be added periodically. (They are listed by county, and then in alphabetical order by last name.)
