Welcome!
First....
Well the biggest news is the Alabama Historian's Page has
a brand new home! Thanks Rootsweb!!
Due to rising costs of my old server it was not possible to
keep it where it was. I know this will cause some confusion at
first, but if you are reading this it means you have found me!
Changes in the future will be many new additions to current
information. (Now that I am able to upload again.) I have a
lot ready so keep coming back. The history of the hamlets,
schools, churches, and so much more will be appearing soon.
Second...
For those of you interested in both Native American History and
cemeteries, I have something special added for you! We did a
family outing to Forest Lawn in Buffalo, NY. From the Tonawanda
Indian Page you can visit the Red Jacket Memorial. Ely Parker as
well as other notable Seneca Indians are buried there as well. There
is also a new link on the favorites page to the PBS and Rochester
Museum and Science Centers page called "Warrior in Two
Worlds". The web site tells the story of Ely S. Parker, Union
General, and Seneca Chief.
And Finally...
There are a few new links on the "Favorite Links" page. The one
mentioned above, a new cemetery restoration site, and best of all the
link to the best map site I have ever seen!! They are 18th and 19th
century maps of the US and the states. After you pick one, you can
zoom in on it without any distortion. After you blow it up if there is a
section you want, just right click your mouse and do a 'save as".
You can then open the image in any photo program and print it out.
Too awesome!
Enjoy your visit!
