The Southwest Mississippi Genealogical Society was created in the year 2000, uniting those with the similar interest of researching their families’ history.
To promote genealogical research in Southwest Mississippi; to provide research materials and equipment for use by the membership; to answer queries from researchers seeking information from this area; and provide for public access through the Pike-Amite-Walthall public library system headquartered in McComb, Mississippi.
We meet every other month in the conference room of the McComb Library at 6:00 p.m. Anyone interested in genealogy is welcome to attend our meetings. We have interesting speakers at our meetings that speak about historical happenings in Pike County as well as genealogy searches. Most of our speakers are local and may possibly be a next door neighbor. Come and join us. If after visiting with us, you decide to become a member, you will find our dues are very reasonable. The dues are $15.00 per member or $25.00 for a family, yearly. Our dues year starts in July. We welcome all.
