Welcome to

Tishomingo County, Mississippi



Out of the Chickasaw Land, Tishomingo County was formed and ceded to the United States on February 9, 1836.
Its name taken from the last full-blooded war chief and Chickasaw Chief John Holmes Tishomingo, who died on the famous "Trails of Tears" and is buried in Little Rock, Arkansas.  The county seat of Tishomingo, Iuka, is named after his son.  In the 1870's, Tishomingo County was divided into three counties
forming Alcorn, Prentiss, & Tishomingo.

Welcome to the Tishomingo County, Mississippi Genealogy Trails website. My name is Pat and I am your Tishomingo County host.
We need 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.

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 this 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 are always in need of Mississippi County Hosts.
Its challenging, very rewarding, and its a great group to work with so please check out 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.
