The Alcorn County Genealogical Society

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 August, November, February and May. 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 Vicki Burress Roach a "Professional Genealogist" has a weekly column in our local newspaper "The Daily Corinthian" called "Family Branches" in which queries may be published. There is no charge to members or non-members for queries submitted. Please note that queries submitted to Vicki or the ACGS Editor may be edited for clarification.
We regret that we do not have sufficient staff at our Research Library to do general lookups.
