As I conducted research for interesting stories to publish and/or post on my Alabama Pioneers website, I continually found buried genealogy information, such as marriages, deaths, etc. that I knew would be of great benefit to family researchers, but it was hidden so well that most search engines would not find it. I decided to collect this information rather than disregard it until I could decide how to best share it with researchers.

After much contemplation, I decided that Kindle-books were the best option since the book could easily be searched through the search engines on Kindle, computers or electronic devices. This would eliminate the need for indexing a tremendous number of names.

This is the 1st book of the Alabama Genealogy Notes series and it includes genealogy information from various lists found in early Birmingham, Alabama newspapers. Printing was difficult in old newspapers and editors often made many mistakes, typos, misspelled words, etc. in their newspapers. I have transcribed the extracts exactly as printed so please be aware that you may see these errors in the text of the books.

Cavan Leahys (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: The Leahy / Lahey / Lahy families of County Cavan have a long history in the County.
They are a distinct group of 'Leahys' isolated from the other concentrations of Leahy
families in Ireland. Several theories of their origins are explored along with
rationales and what little evidence that exists to support them. After many years
researching the Leahys in Cavan I have come to the conclusion that they (and Leahys
in neighbouring counties) are all related. I have studied Church and Civil records
along with census data, Wills and most importantly Land Deeds records as well as some
private collections and have been able to create a 'Top of the Tree' structure that
fits in with all the known data. There are still plenty of holes and isolated groups
that can't yet be connected, however I present what I see to be the most accurate
Leahy family tree in County Cavan from the late 1600s to about the year 1800.
This volume is about the 'Origins' and the most early Leahy / Lahy individuals
that are on record. Hopefully it might provide some insight to the Leahy descendants
worldwide who can't get much further back in their family history research than 'Cavan'.
A second volume will describe the various Leahy groups from 1800 onwards

Secret Genealogy (7 Book Series)
From Book 1: Secret Genealogy is a “must read” for those who want to trace their ancestry into antiquity. Suellen Ocean believes that many American surnames were originally of Jewish descent. “There are millions of people out there who don’t know who they descend from. Americans should reopen their family albums and look deeper into the meanings of names in their family trees and symbols in their coats of arms. Names like Levi, Jacob, Benjamin, Rebecca, Sarah, Ezekiel and Hester and symbols such as the lion may have been the last opportunity many parents had to lay claim to a heritage that stems back thousands of years.”
Does your Grandfather have an Old Testament Biblical name? If the author’s hypothesis is correct, America was built on a much stronger Jewish foundation than what was originally thought by historians.
You’ll be fascinated with the origins of your surname and you’ll comprehend the names of rivers and streams, oceans and continents in a different light, wondering… what do they really mean?
Be prepared to let go of all your previous assumptions. Have fun with Suellen Ocean while she brainstorms through Secret Genealogy.

REVOLUTIONARY WAR SOLDIERS IN ALABAMA (4 Book Series)
From Book 1: After the Revolutionary War, free bounty land was offered by the federal government to citizens and soldiers for their service..

No bounty land was available in many of the Original Thirteen colonies because the states lacked enough vacant land to support the policy so the government looked to the frontier in the western domains for awarding bounty land. This practice served an additional purpose. With veterans settled on frontier lands, the states could rely on a military force from the revolutionary soldier to protect the settlements from Indians.

Many of these soldiers received grants in Georgia, Tennessee and the Mississipi Territory, parts of which later became the state of Alabama.

This book includes genealogical and biographical information on 26 Revolutionary Soldiers who were in early Alabama and/or collected military pensions for their service.

The soldiers in this volume are: JAMES CALDWELL, JOHN YOUNG, CAPT. ANTHONY WINSTON, WILLIAM SANDERS, CAPTAIN WILLIAM ARMISTEAD, WILLIAM WICKER, BRYANT ADAMS, WILLIAM PULLEN, GEORGE AGNEW, JOHN WEBSTER, ROBERT WESTON, GEORGE TAYLOR, GOV. JOHN SEVIER, JAMES ROBERTSON, HARRISON NICHOLSON, JAMES MCCRORY, DAVID MURRAY, CHARLES LITTLETON, DAVID LINDSAY, EPHRAIM KIRBY, JOHN WADE KEYES, COL. JOSPEH HUGHES, SAMUEL TOWNSEND, JOHN TOWNSEND, HENRY TOWNSEND, and ANDREW TOWNSEND

A Brief History of Everyone Who Ever Lived: The Human Story Retold Through Our Genes
National Book Critics Circle Award—2017 Nonfiction Finalist

“Nothing less than a tour de force—a heady amalgam of science, history, a little bit of anthropology and plenty of nuanced, captivating storytelling.”—The New York Times Book Review, Editor's Choice

A National Geographic Best Book of 2017


In our unique genomes, every one of us carries the story of our species—births, deaths, disease, war, famine, migration, and a lot of sex. But those stories have always been locked away—until now. Who are our ancestors? Where did they come from? Geneticists have suddenly become historians, and the hard evidence in our DNA has blown the lid off what we thought we knew. Acclaimed science writer Adam Rutherford explains exactly how genomics is completely rewriting the human story—from 100,000 years ago to the present.

Discover the answers to your family history mysteries using the most-cutting edge tool available. This plain-English guide is a one-stop resource for how to use DNA testing for genealogy. Inside, you'll find guidance on what DNA tests are available, plus the methodologies and pros and cons of the three major testing companies and advice on choosing the right test to answer your specific genealogy questions. And once you've taken a DNA test, this guide will demystify the often-overwhelming subject and explain how to interpret DNA test results, including how to understand ethnicity estimates and haplogroup designations, navigate suggested cousin matches, and use third-party tools like GEDmatch to further analyze your data.
