CCPP Vol. 1 No. 4 by Damon Veach

If you haven’t read the April 6th edition, you better scramble on over to Claitors and read! Mr. Veach discusses: Missin’ Mississippians, Special Building-Special Occassion, Morris-Duncan-Kidd, McDonogh Tradition, Forensic Genealogy, Vital Records and Querys.

(I have a few missing relatives in Mississippi, too. We are neighbors after all!)

Mr Veach states that querys are published free.
From Claitors

If you are interested in continuing reading and enjoying these column formats, you need to know that it is now a part of Claitor’s Publishing Division’s outstanding collection of publications ( Queries are published free and can be any length but should have a Louisiana connection by heritage or by a state resident working on lines in other areas.
