What's NEW at "Tracing Your Ancestors in Sturgis, MS"
In the interest of saving time, I have decided to give updates on new and uploaded information to the site.  This way, you know "what's new" without having to dig through the site.  The only items you will not find here shown as updated are individual records (such as if someone were to send in a correction for a date on a tombstone, etc).  Again, we welcome any records or photos!
