Beginning in 2010, the Local Government Records Office of MDAH began a multi-year project to assist and advise county governments in managing their earliest records. One component of that project was to inventory the pre-1920 records in Mississippi's oldest counties.
The information in these tables was accurate as of the date of the inventory and therefore may not reflect the records currently in the custody of a county. In each listing, the data are arranged alphabetically by records series title and then by the earliest data of each volume. MDAH uses common names for most records titles, but titles may vary between counties. Additional explanatory information may be included in the notes column.
