Welcome to Calhoun County, MS

Genealogy and History

Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy

Your state host is Gene Phillips
Please send any data submissions to me. I will upload them as soon as possible.

This site is available for hosting!

  We'll be doing the best we can to create a website that you will find helpful, useful and meaningful as you trace the trails of your ancestors through Calhoun County until a permanent host can be found. We are sorry that we can't do any individual research for you, but if your ancestor left a footprint in this county we'll do everything possible to add information to this site that will help you find them.

We're looking for folks who share our dedication to 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)

If you can't be a County Host, you can still be a great deal of help. We  need volunteers who will ferret out County History of any kind. People who will find interesting documents to transcribe and email to us. We are looking for  information such as Biographies, Deaths, Births and Marriages and Obituaries and any "raw data" that folks can use to build their family trees.

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.
