[MS] Wanted Needed Got To have
A Mississipi Afro Amercan Genealogy Society. I am yelling it, shouting it, begging folks living in the state. Somebody in the fraternities, sororities, universities, politicians, churches, neighborhood folks..just as there were marches to gain rights, we need someone with the stamina, energy and time to start a society. There are so many Mississippi descendants, young and old, just waiting, hoping that one will get started and build strength. There are many of us living in other states who want to support you. I am in societies that have SIG-special interest groups for this state. There have been 2 known times tried to start it. It takes a VILLAGE to get together to build the PALACE. We seniors do not have the time or energy to devote to this. But WE WILL be there to help a long the way. Those of us who live outside the state are ready to send in our membership dues. There is got to be someone who is being 'called' to do this. I hope it happens in my lifetime, just as the fact we have a BLACK PRESIDENT--in my life time.
