The First Families Project
This is an on-going project to research and publish information on the first families of Chambers County, Alabama. Today this county is home to 36,000 people.
This project focuses on the families who were in the area prior to 1850. Chambers County was created in 1832 from Creek Indian lands.
We have identified 1300 surnames (with about 30 more variations in spellings) making up the families living in Chambers County, AL in 1850.
This CDROM contains surname folders on all of these surnames. Some have just a few pages and others contain hundreds. Not all of the notes have connections to Chambers County, but the information is designed to help you research your family both before and after the family was in Chambers County.
