GENEALOGICAL MATERIAL is needed for publication in the Society publication. Records that can be used include wills, cemetery records, marriage and bible records, probate and court records as well as ancestor charts and family histories. DO NOT send your originals -- make Xerox copies! If you need information concerning these, please write to the Editor in care of the Society. Queries and text material may be transmitted by E-Mail to the editor, Jimmy Stone. or sent to P.O. Box 850165, Mesquite, Texas 75185-0165. All material published in the MH&GS publications is contributed by members and the Society claims no responsibility for the accuracy of the printed material. A change of address should be sent to the Society immediately when you move to avoid delay in receiving the Publications.

QUERIES are welcomed for publication in the Society Publication and are FREE! Just email your query to the editor,

MH&GS POLICY ON THE REPLACEMENT OF PERIODICALS: The Mesquite Historical & Genealogical Society strives to publish a maximum of genealogical information at minimum costs, in order that the Society's publications may be widely available to all who are interested. Consistent with this objective, certain restraints are necessary in regard to replacement of periodicals which were not received by the intended recipients. Hence, if a member, institution, or other organization fails to receive a copy of The Mesquite Tree, the Society Publication, MH&GS must be notified within six months of the publication date of that issue. Otherwise, the intended recipient will be supplied a replacement copy only if copies are still available and only at the published price. The MH&GS Newsletter primarily carries news of short-term interest and back issues will not normally be available. If there is a special need for back issues, the recipient will be quoted a price for which they may be ordered.

THE MESQUITE HISTORICAL & GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY is under the sponsorship of the Mesquite Public Library, Jeanne Johnson, Director of Library.

BOOK REVIEWING: We accept genealogical or historical books for review; after the review has been published in The Mesquite Tree publication, the book will be placed in the Mesquite Public Library.
