South Mississippi Genealogical & Historical Society Meeting

 

October Meeting information.



Battle for the Southern Frontier: The Creek War and the War of 1812
 


Tuesday, October 1 at 7:00 p.m. at 307 2ndAvenue in Hattiesburg. Clay Williams, of the Mississippi Department of Archives and History, will present a comprehensive program about both wars and the sites on which they were fought. He'll shed light on how the wars led to the forced removal of Native Americans from the region, secured the Gulf South against European powers, facilitated increased migration into the area, furthered the development of slave-based agriculture, and launched the career of Andrew Jackson. All meetings are free and open to the public. The Genealogy Library is open Saturdays 9:00-2:00, Wednesdays, 9:00-1:00, and at 6:00 p.m. before monthly meetings. Experienced genealogy researchers will help you find your family roots.
