This record is arranged alphabetically by the last name of the child employed.

In 1907, the Alabama Legislature passed an act regulating the employment of child labor in mills, factories and manufacturing establishments. It provided that no child under the age of 12 should be employed in the aforementioned. The law also provided that it was unlawful to employ anyone under the age of 18 without first requiring the child to present on a blank provided by the employer, an affidavit of the parent or guardian or other person standing in parental relation, stating the date and place of birth of the child. The blank was then to be filed by the employer within ten days of the employment of the child in the office of the Probate Judge of the county. For further information see General laws and joint resolutions of the legislature of Alabama passed at the session of 1907.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on FamilySearch.org include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.

Errors?

Please report any problems with this record. If there is a note indicating that it is a preliminary description, corrections may not be made until later.

Thank you!

We will use this information to improve our records.
