Ideas for articles:
If you had ancestors in the area, write about where they came from, where they went, what their occupation was, how they traveled, where they went to church, how the made their clothes, what they ate, etc.
If you did not have ancestors in the area before 1830, write about the Pearl River and the role it played in bringing people to the area; or the impact settlers had on the local Indian tribes; or why belonging to a church so important to the survival of the early settlers; or draw a map of the area pre-statehood.
