Ingalls News - New from Jackson County Genealogical Society

Jackson County Genealogical Society has republished the Ingalls News, a publication of the well-known shipbuilding company. The excerpt includes information on 24 employees of the company in a special Christmas issue. The workers came from as far away as the countries of Norway and Italy. A couple of New Englanders are among those featured with one person from New Hampshire and another from Boston among the twenty-four. There are employees from Alabama, Texas and Tennessee. Closer to home but in the northern part of the state, one worker came from Water Valley in Yalobusha County. Most of the featured employees were from the Southern part of Mississippi. Information on obtaining a copy can be found along with the article in the Mississippi Press. (Hat tip to Genealogy Blog)
