I have combined both the surname and the message board here. Please feel free to post the surnames you are researching in Sturgis and the surrounding area here. Do not forget to include a contact email or snail mail address so that other researchers may contact you! Posts of interest to anyone researching this area are also welcome! Good luck in your search!
When posting a query, try to be as specific as you can. If you type, "looking for all Smiths, 1850-1900" you won't get a lot of serious responses! Use first and last names of ancestors and any birth, death or marriage information you have. The location is also very important, so make sure you include Oktibbeha, Sturgis and Mississippi in your post!
We are currently not doing any look up requests, due to time constraints, BUT you can easily request the first two books thru your local library and Inter-Library Loan (ILL). The other resources you should be able to find online or try the website, Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness.
