Mississippi Divorce Records

Divorce is never a happy occasion but it is a part of our reality. Divorce is longer the big taboo it was in the earlier days. In this day of an age, genealogical researchers often try to follow divorce records in their journey. Divorce records not only provide you with information on both parties involved and can provide you with information regarding any other relatives of either individual and their offspring as well as ancestors, but it can also provide information on the married couple such as financial records and the reason the marriage was dissolved. Divorce records in Mississippi are not kept on the state level, but rather at the county level. However, the Mississippi Vital Records Office does maintain an index of divorces since 1926 that allows you to verify if a divorce record exists.
