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 Covington 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

Being a brand new website we are in need of
Mississippi County Hosts.
Its challenging, very rewarding, and its a great group to work with
Please check our
Volunteer Information Page.

If you can't be a County Host that's okay, 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.
