Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy


Welcome to the Alcorn County, Mississippi Genealogy Trails website. My name is Pat and I am your Alcorn County host.
We want your data so check your closets, attics, and old scrapbooks.  If you have anything to add to our page, email your data to
me and I'll take care of putting it online. Everything on our site is free to view
and we are continually adding updates so check back often.

Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing genealogical and historical data
and posting that data online for the free use of all researchers. We are always looking for new data to post.
We're also looking for folks who share our dedication for putting data online and are interested in
helping this project be as successful as it can be.  If you are interested in joining Genealogy Trails,
view our Volunteer Page for further information.
(Enough knowledge to make a basic webpage and a desire to transcribe data is required)


We regret that we are unable to perform personal research for folks.
All data we come across will be added to this site. We thank you for visiting and hope you'll come back again to view the updates we make to this site.


If you would like to be kept informed of our state and county website updates, subscribe to any or all of our mailing lists
Mississippi is covered under our "Southern States" mailing list.

Alcorn County is located in the Northeast corner of the state of Mississippi, bordering on Tennessee.
It was organized April 15, 1870 from portions of Tippah and Tishomingo counties, and was named in honor of Gov. James L. Alcorn,
who was the first chief executive of the State chosen under the constitution of 1869. It was the site of the Siege of Corinth,
an early campaign in the American Civil War. The county seat for Alcorn county is Corinth.
