Welcome to Montgomery County, Mississippi!

CourthouseWelcome to Montgomery County, Mississippi, a part of the MSGenWeb and USGenWeb Project to provide free, on-line genealogical resources. I thought the old site was ready for an upgrade so please check back as I finish upgrading all pages!


Montgomery is located in North Central Mississippi approximately 100 miles south of Memphis, Tennessee and 100 miles north of the State Capital in Jackson, Mississippi.


I am a longtime amateur genealogist who has lived in Montgomery County for almost 30 years. I hope that you are able to find some information that will be helpful. Please feel free to offer suggestions for information you would like to see added. Contributions are greatly appreciated!


I am still looking for a teacher to assign a Biography assignment to her students. This was done in another county and the results were wonderful, preserving histories of our older family, community and church members. I have done this for several older family members and highly recommend using the basic form and doing this within your family. You will have fun and so will they. Please see under "Projects" tab for more information.


Thank you!

Surrounding Counties

surrounding counties Surrounding counties are Grenada to the north, Carroll to the west, Attala to the south, and Choctaw and Webster to the east. Carroll and Choctaw counties are particularly important to Montgomery County researchers as early records prior to the county's formation in 1871 will be located in those counties. I strongly urge anyone researching their roots in Montgomery County to check out the MSGenWeb sites of the surrounding counties:

Attala, Carroll, Choctaw, Grenada, Webster
