Welcome to the Digital Archives of Singing River Genealogy and Local History Library.

After many years growing as a department, Singing River Library is now a branch in the Jackson-George Library System. Today, our collection continues to expand through increased purchases, donations, digitization, and from the support of the Jackson County Historical and Genealogical Society and its members.

Singing River Library houses approximately 10,000 volumes, including family histories, genealogical research guides, city directories, cemetery records, state and county histories, death records, land records, and much more. The collection is especially strong in Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana material.

Our library is also home to over 100 archival collections. Through the Digital Archive, the library hopes to preserve local and family histories and exhibit these materials to a wider audience.
