Did you know that millions of genealogy records are NOT available on the internet?

Many people are unaware that many important records which are crucial to their family tree search cannot be found online. Many Oktibbeha County records, for example, are only available to researchers who physically visit repositories at the local level in Mississippi, at the federal level in Washington, D.C., or at the LDS Family History Library in Utah. Our genealogy researchers have access to all of these records and are ready to assist you with your genealogy search in Mississippi. So, if you have limited your past family tree research to exhaustive internet searches  at Ancestry.com, Rootsweb, and other online databases and web sites, you may have reached a brick wall because you're missing out on the literal gold mine of records available to our genealogists on microfilm, in books, and in other published works at these important locations.

Many genealogical records related to your ancestry search, important records like family wills, court records, obituaries, death certificates, military records and land deeds are generally not available online and can only be obtained by mailing research requests to places like local public libraries or cemeteries, or by visiting the LDS Family History Library in Utah. These records are critical to any comprehensive ancestry search and should not be overlooked if high quality and thorough research results are to be achieved during your project. For these and other reasons, it's sometimes a great idea to hire a professional genealogist to assist you with your genealogy search.
