Not much connection to Alabama, other than two of my stepsisters and their families currently living there. But I did decide to check out the Alabama Department of Archives and History (ADAH) Digital Collections.
They have some pretty neat things including a photograph collection that contains over 15,000 images from the ADAH holdings. You can browse the images by category (e.g., Civil War, Houses, Transportation) or time period. Or you can search on keywords, such as a name or location.
I found the photo above by browsing the Houses category. When you view the photo, there are additional details such as a description, time period, subject listing, and where in the archives collection the photo is located.
There’s some interesting items in the digital collection, so if you have Alabama roots, you should certainly check it out!
