In 1951, the DAR Magazine published Genealogical Guide: Master Index of Genealogy in the Daughters of the American Revolution Magazine, Volumes 1-84 (1892-1950). More than forty members of the Elizabeth Benton Chapter of Kansas City, Missouri worked for months on this guide. Nearly 39,000 references evolved into an index encompassing fifty-nine years of the DAR Magazine. Five years later, the same workers produced a supplementary volume extending the coverage of the Genealogical Guide to 1955. The Genealogical Guide and the Supplement are reproduced in their entirety in this new publication, giving the researcher access to all genealogical items that appeared in the first 89 volumes of the DAR Magazine.
This is an index to 9,000 wills filed and probated in Alabama between 1808 and 1870. The index itself is a model of simplicity, giving, in alphabetical order, the name of the testator, the county of probate, the identity of the record source (usually a will book), the date of the book, and the page number.This volume is also available on our Family Archive CD 7527.
