Genealogy researchers help find your roots

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The South Mississippi Genealogical & Historical Society collect, preserve and disseminate historical documents and information for genealogical research.

With the exception of McCain library at USM, the SMGHS library is the only library in the Hattiesburg area for genealogical research.  Providing experienced genealogy researchers, SMGHS help individuals learn more about their family origins and history.

Kathy Goss, Vice President of SMGHS says anyone is welcome to the library, free of charge, to research and use the resources.

"You have to start with what you know about your family, your parents, your grandparents," says Goss. "We have cemetery records, we have marriage records, we have various court records from the early years of the different counties."

Aside from providing information on the Mississippi counties, the library also provides resources on every state in the nation.

SMGHS next event will help individuals trace clues on old, unknown photographs inherited.
