FamilySearch.org for those who are researching Alabama ancestors. The records
come from multiple county probate judges in Alabama. The type of information
that you might learn from these registers include:

We found a child whose parents were Henry Jackson and Fannie Brown Jackson in Sumter County, Alabama:
On 2 April 1912, Henry Jackson, 35, and Fannie Brown Jackson, 28, had an unnamed daughter in Sumter County, Alabama. She was the 10th child of her father and mother. It would be great to find out what this child’s name was. The 1920 US Census might name her along with some or all of the other nine children.
Then I would step back to search for the child’s grandparents, especially Fannie’s mother and father, with her maiden name given. You can look for the deaths of the children by searching the parents.
