Family History Research
From answering questions about your ancestors to finding family, all your general research needs can be met. Start from scratch or have your research reviewed/verified and move forward.
Searching for family documents like marriage records, birth certificates, land patents, etc. can be time-consuming and tedious. Let Southern Heritage Genealogy help you locate and retrieve records and documentation.
Record lookups at the Mississippi Department of Archives and History:
We are happy to help you quickly obtain any copies/scans you need from the State Archives. From MS death certificates to microfilm to manuscripts, we have you covered!
Family Legend Verification
Have you heard a fascinating family story? Do you wonder if that handed-down tale really is true? You're not alone, and many times there is another side of the story just waiting to be found. Southern Heritage Genealogy can help you discover the truth.
If you are thinking of applying to a lineage society, but are not sure about completing the research or application yourself, help is here.
Transcription and Abstraction
Do you have a document you need transcribed? A will that needs the legalese sorted so that it makes more sense? A land deed that you want typed instead of having to read a handwritten copy from the 1800s? No problem. We can do that for you.
Education and Presentations
Presentations can be made to groups of any size. See the list under the presentation tab or click the link at the top of this page. Custom topics can be created as well. Consulting and/or tutoring is available to provide you with specialized learning tracts to better your skills as a researcher.
