CORINTH, Miss. (AP) -- The Alcorn County Genealogy Society has launched a push to gather information on how the Civil War affected residents of northeast Mississippi and parts of southern Tennessee.
 
Society member Gale Judkins tells The Daily Corinthian the group has almost no information from the era. It hopes local families will share letters, diaries and oral stories that recount life in the region during the Civil War and the Reconstruction period that followed.
 
Judkins said the group is interested in information on Tishomingo, Alcorn and Prentiss counties in Mississippi as well as southern McNairy and Hardin counties in Tennessee.
 
She says the society can be contacted at 662-286-0075.
