- Amelia Willcutt accepts queries for Alabama ancestors. The queries are organized by surname instead of county, and Amelia maintains a cross-index when several surnames are supplied in the query.
- The Walker County Genealogical Society (WCGS) also publishes queries in Walking Back in Time ($2.00 per query for non-members, free for members; 40 words or less per query, P.O. Box 3408, Jasper, AL 35502-3408).
In addition to writing the WCGS, you can now submit queries via email to Karen Langley Powell, family tree editor for the WGCS, at email@example.com.
The WCGS queries are also printed on Fridays in the Lifestyles section of Walker County's Daily Mountain Eagle newspaper -- although they no longer appear in the web edition. For a query to be placed in the Daily Mountain Eagle you do not have to be a member of the Society, and it is free!
