The Photograph Collections
of the Alabama Department of Archives and History:

  Few things can add as much life to historical and genealogical research as a well-placed photograph. Join us Saturday morning, April 12, at 10:00 to learn about the photograph collections of the Alabama Department of Archives and History (ADAH). Archivist Meredith McLemore will discuss the types of images available and offer tips for locating them using the ADAH catalog and finding aids.
