The Lafayette County Historical and Genealogical Society located in Oxford, MS is a non-profit organization whose main purpose is “to seek, collect, preserve, and disseminate facts and information with reference to historical, genealogical and biographical matters.” Our major work is the compilation, safe-keeping, displaying and publication of old records, both public and private, books and materials relating to Lafayette County and her people, past and present. 

Membership to the Society is offered to anyone willing to actively support the purpose of the Society. Membership runs annually, January to December. Dues are $20. We are a 501C3 organization and are registered with the Mississippi Secretary of State as a charity. If you’re interested in joining us or donating to support our work, you can do it online HERE or you can mail your check with this FORM to us at PO Box 1382, Oxford, MS 38655. We need volunteers to help us accomplish all these great things.  Please let us know on the form if you could help even an hour a week. We offer training and the opportunity to learn even more about research.
