Mobile connections? Check out the Mobile Genealogical Society

Do your roots stretch to The Port City?

The Mobile Genealogical Society is a very active organization that’s well worth the $30 annual dues. (Disclaimer here: I’m a long time member).

The group publishes an admirable journal,  Deep South Genealogical Quarterly and a lively newsletter. They also have their own library (limited hours) and their website, http://mobileroots.org, offers valuable information and links on Mobile history and genealogical resources.

The society has published numerous indexes and abstracts of Mobile records, including an impressive set of municipal death records with  indexes and copies of the records on microfiche.
