Copiah County Research

Pin It Now!

The MSGen Web project has a great website with links to some very useful information for people doing research in Copiah  County. During the course of my work I have found the cemetery indexes on the site to be especially helpful for researchers who know a relative was buried in Copiah County but they don't know when the relative died or the name of the cemetery.  Check out the site and let us know how you like it.

"Were your ancestors in a tornado?  Was grandpa killed working on the railroad?  Did your grandmother talk about the great flood?  Then, GenDisasters is for you.  While we hope that your ancestors never endured the hardships and sufferings from fires, explosions, floods, mine accidents and other disasters, we're here to help you find the ancestors that did.  From fires to floods, train wrecks to tornadoes, we're chronicling every wreck, every accident, every drowning, every storm - every event that touched our ancestors lives."
