BPL's Digital Collections were created to preserve and make available the local history of Birmingham and the surrounding area. These resources may help students, teachers, genealogists, historians and interested citizens learn more about the history of Birmingham.
In the spring of 2003, members of AGS and other volunteers began a project to index a three-volume set of books shelved at the Birmingham Public Library. They contain a wealth of information about people, places, and events of interest to historians and genealogists. In May of 2005, a consolidated index of all three volumes was completed, printed, bound and donated to the library. Researchers will find the index invaluable when researching information found in "Sketches".
