JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Help needed--Alabama 1855 state Census index #general

Rachel Unkefer <runkefer@...>

I just found my husband's great-grandfather in the 1860 census in
Mobile, Alabama, but not his brother, who I think must have been
there with him. Alabama took a state census in 1855, which I can get
on microfilm >from the LDS, but I can't get the index, which was
published in a book: Jackson, Ronald Vern. Alabama 1855 Census Index
. Bountiful, Utah: Accelerated Indexing Systems, 1984 . If somebody
lives in Alabama or near a library which holds this reference book, I
would greatly appreciate knowing if the ancestor appears in the index
before I order the microfilm of the census. The names I am searching
are DOERNBERG/DORNBERG/DORNBURG or any other alternate spellings that
somebody might have come up with or NEWBERGER/NEUBERGER, who I
suspect was related to Joseph Doernberg's brother-in-law.

Thanks in advance for any assistance. I am happy to reciprocate in
any way I can.
