Ancestry.com owner, the Generations Network, is starting a preservation project in Montgomery, Alabama as evidenced by this advertisement on Yahoo!hotjobs. Contacted for comment, spokesperson Mike Ward confirmed the project.
"We’re working with the Alabama Department of Archives & History to digitize some Civil War records on-site," disclosed Ward.
Ward said that Ancestry.com is also working on the Alabama State Census, which is being indexed through Ancestry.com's volunteer indexing program, the World Archives Project. A check of the project page did not show any Alabama State Census images currently available for download, but active indexers of any database will be able to see the resulting Alabama State Census database once it is published.
