Surprisingly, four posts generated the most traffic. Subjects of these posts were Robert Johnson's grave, the Bridgewater Inn, a bed and breakfast in Greenwood, Mississippi, the new B. B. King Museum located in Indianola, Mississippi, and a review of a recently published book, One Night of Madness, written by native Mississippian, Stokes McMillan.
The past year was a terrific year for communications from readers, and during 2009, I received many emails from throughout the country. Some of these emails were from new cousins who are now proud additions to my family tree, while others originated from readers who are not related. Although they are not related to the writer of this blog, several of these readers were kind enough to share family history information that was included in posts here on Mississippi Memories. Posts entitled The Restoration of a Cemetery: Conner Cemetery and The Hemingway Family Migrates to Madison County, Mississippi resulted from reader contacts and information and facts provided by these dedicated family researchers.
The simple fact is that Mississippi Memories owes its success to you, its readers. And I thank you, one and all!
