Mississippi Genealogy Records

Many people today are interested in learning more about their past and their ancestors. As a result Genealogy is one of the most common terms in search engines on the World Wide Web. For those who are new to the world of Genealogy, there are many ways one can find information regarding their ancestors. Some of the most common forms of public records used for genealogy are: For Birth Records In Mississippi, birth records are maintained by the Vital Records Office which holds birth records as far back as 1912. For Death Records Mississippi death records are maintained by the Vital Records Office and date back to 1912. Mississippi Code 41-57-2 governs who is and isn't allowed to request copies of death records. Family members are allowed to order a record of any age. Others may be able to access death records 50 years after the event. For Obituaries The number of online resources for Mississippi obituaries is small, but the resources that do exist cover a lot of ground. This state is a bit slow when it comes to converting all those hand printed and analog records to digital, so if you check back in the years to come, they will surely have more to offer as far as Internet articles go. The Lincoln Lawrence Franklin Regional Library has an online database that you can access that contains listings from The Daily Leader newspaper. The database contains listings for the Brookhaven area from 1969-1999. The Tippah County USGenWeb site is another great source for Mississippi obituary records. This site features information from the 1800's and 1900's that appeared in the local Ripley's Southern Sentinel newspaper. In addition to the sites mentioned above, you may also want to check out local newspaper sites for the region of the state you are searching for. Sometimes, offices of vital records in various counties will also have these listings along with the official death certificate on file. It is unclear when these resources will fully come online, but until they do, you can contact them by phone or by mail to see what can be discovered. For Marriages In Mississippi, marriage records are maintained on the state level by the Vital Records Office from 1926 till 1938 as well as 1942 till present day.
