Welcome to the new Mississippi Genealogical Society website! We are a work in progress and we are endeavoring to create a space for information, but also for interaction, gathering, and sharing. We are focused on genealogical research and preservation of records and resources which are the foundation of research. We are also focused on education and developing our skills.

Society Meetings

The Mississippi Genealogical Society meets on the third Saturday every September, November, January, March and May. Our January meeting is designated for our annual seminar and is a day-long learning event, led by talented professionals. All other meetings are held at the Municipal Art Gallery (parking in the back of the building) starting at 1:30 p.m. There will be a program focusing on genealogical research and there will be refreshments following the program. Society members and guests are all welcome!
