  1. My family has Mississippi roots but I see no shared surnames.

    But do continue your blog. I enjoy it.

  2. I have Porter's from NC>MS in my roots. Would like to compare as mine is limited.

  3. So many of my family is from Mississippi and still are. Please visit and join my blog. You may know some of them.
