Welcome to our website home!

 

History is being reborn in our community with the programs and projects of the Jackson County Historical and Genealogy Society. Attendance at our monthly meetings continues to grow, nurtured by a diversity of entertaining and educational programs.  

We have enjoyed each otherís fellowship as we learn about our local history and identify ways to protect the heritage of our past. We are a publishing society with an annual journal (free to members), and in 2009 we published a Cemetery Book that celebrates the lives of 45,000 citizens in a format valuable to genealogists and historians. 

We usually meet the fourth Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m. in the meeting room at Pascagoula Public Library. Meetings last about an hour and we regularly have refreshments and a free door prize drawing. Meetings and membership are open to the public. We serve all of Jackson County's communities and municipalities.
