It has been a busy weekend for me, getting the society’s quarterly journal ready for the publisher. The weekend was spent for the most part, indexing the 224 pages of the 2008 volume of magazines. I now have the Winter issue complete with the annual index neatly stored on a compact disc in PDF format ready to be turned in to the publisher tomorrow. The magazine should be mailed to the membership later this week. The 2008 surname index (which is a part of the Winter print issue) is available online at the society’s website. The index can be viewed from the society’s publications page. Just select the 2008 index link.
Now it’s time to start planning the Spring 2009 issue. Many interesting items are scheduled for publication during the new year. And the society has several source records to be scanned and placed online. Exciting things are happening in the Itawamba Historical Society with the promotion and preservation of Itawamba County, Mississippi’s rich history and heritage!
