Letter from the President:

Happy New Year! 

I am so delighted to welcome everyone to what I hope will be a wonderful year for the Mississippi Genealogical Society. I have absolutely enjoyed serving the society and working with such a wonderful board.  Due to unforeseen circumstances, including possible actual winter weather, we will not have our January seminar.  However, we have two other meetings – March and May -- before I close my two-year term as president, and we welcome in a new slate of officers in May.   In March our presenter will be Tom Wicker; and in May will be election and presentation of officers, followed by presentation and welcome from the incoming president.

               I want to encourage you to share your ideas and be an active member of the Mississippi Genealogical Society.  I think it is safe to say we have rebounded from Covid and are growing not just in membership but in establishing new goals for the society that help researchers do what they do best -research. We are excited to have members willing to serve the society for the first time.  We eagerly anticipate the contributions they will bring to the table to enable the society to move forward and stay relevant.

               As I close, I think about the airline steward/stewardess who always states, “Thank for flying with us today.  We know you have a choice of airlines and we thank you for choosing….”  Likewise, Mississippi Genealogical Society thanks you for choosing to spend your time and energy with us. We know you have a choice of many activities and organizations with which to participate and we thank you for choosing the Mississippi Genealogical Society.

Happy Hunting!
