We're getting the Alabama Room into shape as fast as we
can. This room is located next to the museum - when you come
into the meeting/gallery room, look for the sign pointing to
the right toward the Alabama Room.
The Alabama Room, a repository for genealogical research in the Thomas E. McMillan Museum, moved into the adjacent area in January 2008. The pictures depict areas in the Alabama Room and one may see there is still work to be done. Volunteers are welcome!
Heritage Books for each of the Alabama counties, Family History books, books on Mississippi and Georgia counties, along with census and cemetery indexes are available for use. Quarterlies from Escambia and other regional county historical and genealogical organizations are readily available, as are newspapers dating from the 1880s, either on microfilm or hard copy. Some documents are very fragile and use is restricted.
The Vertical File Cabinets are constantly being updated with newspaper clippings, data submitted by members and guests alike. Records are kept to allow researchers to follow up with others who came before them.
