How to get started and find online resources

What can I find in Special Collections?

Our Special Collections' genealogy resources page focuses primarily on local and state genealogical resources and include family histories, county and town history books, church records, military records, and much more. For more information on what you might find in our Special Collections department, email sp_coll@library.msstate.edu.

You can also use resources at the Mississippi Department of Archives and History. Some are online, and some must be accessed in Jackson.
