Alcorn County is located in the Northeast corner of the state of Mississippi, bordering on Tennessee.
It was organized on April 15, 1870, from parts of Tippah and Tishomingo counties, and was named in honor of Gov. James L. Alcorn,
who was the first chief executive of the State chosen under the constitution of 1869. This was the site of the Siege of Corinth,
an early campaign in the American Civil War. Corinth is the county seat of Alcorn County.

    ACGS will be sponsoring another set of genealogy classes. This fall, we'll meet on Monday nights from 6p-9p starting September 19th. We'll be meeting in the ministry center of Tate Baptist Church, which is on the corner of Harper Rd. and 3rd Street. (Park in the back near the office as we won't have access through the front lobby of the church).

    Cost is $25 for all 5 sessions. We are limiting registration to no more than 25 participants so everyone can get individual help with brick walls. The fee will be paid the first night.

    Besides the basics of start up genealogy, we'll also be doing tutorials on the use of;, and Find-a-Grave.

    If you are interested, please email to tell us you want to attend: or call 662-808-0616.
