Our Genealogical Helper for Pine Level ...

We have a couple of goals for our Gazetteer:

  • That it be a tool that can help us with planning our trips.
  • That it also helps us to understand the community which surrounded our ancestors and that was part of their daily lives.

By learning about Pine Level (and the surrounding area) during the time that our ancestors lived, we hope to have a better understanding of both their community and its relationship to their lifes. We hope that this tool helps to give us insight while doing our genealogical research.

As we organize our Gazetteer to help with our family research, we will be adding to this, our Genealogical Helper for Pine Level. While we don't have information that is specific to any given person or family, we intend to expand our understanding about where and how people lived.

It's still very early in our research, but as we gather more information it will be added to this page.

Newspapers Published in Pine Level ...

An ongoing effort between the Library of Congress and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) has resulted in the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

To share their results, the partnership has created the Chronicling America website. The goal of this partnership is to assemble a database about the current and historic newspapers of the United States. This includes a growing collection of scanned (or digitized) images from selected papers. All of it available to the public on their website.

Although we're unaware of any newspapers that were published in the immediate area of Pine Level, there are papers which were published within 20 miles [32.2 km]<1>. A list of those papers, sorted by paper name, can be found on the Extended Newspaper List for Pine Level.

Cemeteries Near Pine Level ...

Below are cemeteries that are in the vicinity of Pine Level.

This is a new section and is likely to have errors. If you find an error, such as a missing cemetery or we have the wrong name, please let us know. If you know of them, we would also appreciate learning about previous or alternate names.

If you need information about a burial or interment, photos, transcripts, how to contact the cemetery or local authorities, please visit our selection of Genealogy Websites (see below).

If you click on the [Map] that follows each cemetery's name, a new browser window will open with a Google map showing a satellite view of the area where the cemetery is located. We have tried to place the cemetery in the center of the map, but we're still working on our data and the map might not not be centered properly. If you don't see it right away, try zooming-in. Usually, but not always, you can see the outline of the cemetery and some of the headstones.

Covering a larger area and in alphabetical order, we have our Cemetery List for Pine Level.

Nearby Communities in 1895 ...

We've built the following list with information that came from an Atlas published by Rand McNally in 1895. The Atlas had details such as the population of the community (which appears to have come from the 1890 Census) and whether there was a post office and/or railroad service available. We also indicate if the community no longer exists and is now historic.<2>

While we didn't find Pine Level in the Atlas, the following 1895 communities would have been found near the current location of Pine Level.

These communities are listed based on their distance from Pine Level, with the one closest to Pine Level listed first.

Neighboring Counties ...

When searching for family records, we have frequently made the mistake of not checking the neighboring counties.

For example, we have great-grandparents who lived in the southeast corner of their home county. During their lives, most doctors were in the next county to the east. Almost all of the nearby churches and cemeteries were in the county to the south.

So when searching for records, we had our best success by looking in neighboring counties instead of the county in which they lived:  their home county contained property and probate records; the county to the east contained birth and death records; the county to the south contained their burial records. If we hadn't expanded our search to the neighboring counties, we would have missed many valuable sources of information.

If you're in a similar situation, we hope that the following information helps.

Pine Level is located in Coffee County.

The following counties adjoin and form the boundaries of Coffee County: Covington, Crenshaw, Dale, Geneva & Pike.

Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance that starts at Pine Level. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, private property - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Pine Level) to Point B.

- Return to Citation

<2>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Pine Level, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
