Submissions: The Officers and Editorial Board strongly encourage submissions to Mississippi River Routes. Please consider preparing an original, well-documented family or local history article. In addition, our members are always interested in original civil records, criminal records, Bible records, cemetery inventories, church records, “how-to” articles, historical anecdotes, or other useful genealogical information. You may offer something that others would not see.
Queries: Always welcomed. Share your questions as well as your contributions. Someone may have the answer you need. Please be succinct and focused, but provide enough information to address your problem.
