Marion County Mississippi Genealogy Society (MCMGS)  

For our purposes, Marion County is defined as what was Marion County from before statehood to present day Marion County. This encompasses the SE 1/4 of the State of Mississippi and part of Northern Lousisana.

Mission: To preserve the genealogy of Marion County Mississippi pioneers and settlers; to add historical values to said genealogies; to maintain said genealogies for future generations; to assist individuals in documenting their genealogy; to assist individuals and churches in digitizing records; and to publish genealogy information in digital formats on a free website.


MCMGS does not maintain a physical library. There is only digital storage on the website of contributions made by members, or the public. If you have an old Bible, we are willing to host pictures of the Bible, but not keep the actual Bible.


At this time there is no charge to join.


Membership benefit is receipt of newsletter in PDF format and ability to contact other members of the society to obtain assistance in completing research projects.
