Susie Dent, President of the NMSHGS, sent me the following email regarding our January Meeting,

"As many of you 'history' buffs know, Elvis Presley was born in Tupelo, MS. The Tupelo community and Elvis fans from around the world celebrate his birthday every January 8. We at the Northeast Mississippi Historical and Genealogical Society are joining in on the celebration by having a program on the 'Genealogy of Elvis'.

"Longtime Tupelo historian Julian Riley has been researching the family tree of Elvis for more than 11 years. He shares his discoveries on his personal website: (There is a fee to view the complete genealogy). Julian will be presenting a program on the 'Genealogy of Elvis' at 6 p.m., Thursday, January 22, 2009 at the Lee County Library for the Northeast Mississippi Historical and Genealogical Society. Julian has been a presenter of several programs for the Society and his topics and presentations are always very interesting and well received.

"The public is invited to attend. For more information, contact Susie Dent at"

Hope to see you there!
