Baldwin County Heritage Families Project
Heritage is our history.  Our heritage is important in understanding the story of Baldwin County-its history, identity and its people.  People who considered themselves everyday citizens left their marks in Baldwin County.  People like, Mary Williams Calhoun.  Mary Williams Calhoun was born April 13, 1915 in the Spanish Fort Community.  At the age of 103, Ms. Calhoun attended the heritage families recognition ceremony.  She along with many others are our heritage and our identity.  We are honored to celebrate the descendants of ancestors who lived in Baldwin County for generations.

THE AUGUST 1ST DEADLINE IS FAST APPROACHING!  The Baldwin County Commission through its Department of Archives and History announces a ceremony to recognize the early settlers of Baldwin County, Alabama. Citizens who are descendants of ancestors who lived in Baldwin County before 1920 are eligible to be designated as a Baldwin County Heritage Family member. Applicants must complete an application. A paper copy of the application should be delivered to 312 Courthouse Square, Suite 26, Bay Minette, Alabama 36507, you may email applications to: archivalrecords@baldwincountyal.gov  or fax to (251) 580-2528.

 A descendant qualifies for inclusion on the listing if they can show that they have an ancestor who lived in Baldwin County before 1920. Proof of record may include birth certificates, census records, deeds, family documents or any other valid record. Proof of ancestry is required as part of the application process. Each applicant must complete an application and can submit the application under only ONE ancestor. There is a place on the application for listing additional Baldwin County ancestors.

 Heritage Family recognition is officially endorsed as an AL200 project. Alabama is celebrating 200 years as a state for three years: 2017, 2018 and 2019. 2018 was designated as the year to “Celebrate Our People.” A booklet titled “Baldwin County, Alabama Heritage Families” will be published and available to the public on or before December 14, 2019.
