Introduction - During the 1980s and 1990s, Walt O. Holliman (1927 – 2003), a descendant of the English Holymans of the 15th Century, worked diligently at his Alabama home researching and writing papers on his ancestors.  In autumn 2011, his children, to whom we should all be grateful, shipped me his boxes of materials for review.  During the early winter of 2012, I worked at cataloguing and studying Walt’s incredible collection, which he largely put together before the Internet age.

What follows is a compilation of his work and genealogical library.  His family history manuscripts,  over 50 of them, are remarkable.  In the family history, map and research folders, one will find research with hundreds of photocopies of wills, deeds, marriages and histories that pertain to the larger Holliman family and Walt’s earlier families. 

I want to make this material available as my time and resources permit.  I am happy to provide details of the materials (greater than my cursory explanations below) and answer all inquiries. 

Walt and his children wanted to share this material.  That is what I hope to do in the time left to me with the papers safely filed away in my barn library.  After that, the Walt O. Holliman collection, my own papers and perhaps others will find an appropriate repository and not be lost, as has so much work in decades past, in some uncaring relative's attic or worse, an incinerator.

If you are wondering what to do with old photographs, letters, scrapbooks and papers, please contact me. – Glenn N. Holliman at
