who was the first chief executive of the State chosen under the constitution of 1869. This was the site of the Siege of Corinth,

FALL GENEALOGY CLASSES
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 Ancestry.com; FamilySearch.org, and Find-a-Grave.
If you are interested, please email to tell us you want to attend: email@example.com or call 662-808-0616.
