Welcome to Prentiss County, Mississippi Genealogy Trails website.

This site along with many others is a volunteer website and we are affiliated with the national Genealogy Trails.

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).

My name is Pat and I am your Prentiss County host and I could use your help. Please check your closets, attics, and old scrapbooks. If you find something you would like to share, send me an email and I will be more than happy to put your data on the Prentiss County site.
