Mississippi Coast History Week

Banner for this year’s History Week
      For the past two years I have been fortunate enough to be a member of the Mississippi Coast Historical and Genealogical Society.  It is a great time to socialize with other local historians and genealogists.  Every year we honor the coast’s history by hosting this annual event.  Many coast ethnic groups, museums, and historical societies join us to present their artifacts and research.  Today we kicked off the event for the first time at the new Biloxi Visitor’s Center.  Here are a few images from today.
