About Our Society
The Alcorn County Genealogical Society
was formed in 1992. Our research library is located on the ground floor of the
Alcorn County Courthouse in Corinth, Mississippi and is open to the public
Tuesday through Friday from 10:00am to 2:00pm and at other times by appointment. To arrange for an appointment other

Since our inception we have continued to add
original Alcorn County and Old Tishomingo County Court House records as well as many new
census records for our surrounding area. Our officers and members extend a cordial invitation
for you to
join our society.
The fiscal year for the society runs from September 1st. through August 31st. Meetings are held quarterly at our Library on the second Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. Meetings are held in the months of March, May, September and November. If there is inclimate weather at the normal times the meeting will be held the following Tuesday.
We have a copy machine, microfilm reader/printer and a computer with CD-ROM. Some of our members who have ties to Alcorn County reside in the states of; Indiana, Louisiana, Tennessee, Illinois, Florida, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, Alabama, California, Georgia, Texas, Arkansas, Colorado, Idaho, Ohio, Oregon, North Carolina and Anchorage, Alaska. Our Society also exchanges publications with 8 Genealogical, Historical and Archive organizations.
Dues are $20.00 per year. Members will receive four issues of our quarterly Publication "Cross City Connections." The ACGS Editor will also publish queries in our publication which have local connections. Additionally Linda Dunn is a professional genealogist whom you may want to consider helping with your research for a fee. Contact our email address for more information.
