Morgan County Archives

Morgan County Archives


The Archives is home to hundreds of volumes of historical and genealogical subject matter. There are also permanent and rotating exhibits of the many artifacts and images from the Archives' collection. Included is an exhibit about the "Scottsboro Boys", which displays images from the 1933 trial of Haywood Patterson. Many of the books in the Archives collection are rarities that can seldom be found elsewhere, including histories of local churches, communities, and schools. Biographies, maps, school annuals and old directories are here, as well as numerous indexes to aid in searching public records, cemeteries, and other resources. Although much of the material deals with Morgan County, a great deal also covers the rest of Alabama, and the entire South. Of particular value to the genealogist are numerous family histories, files of clippings and research by surname, and collections of genealogical publications from throughout the South and beyond. Much of this material has been cross-indexed by volunteers of the Morgan County Genealogical Society.
