Ordering Back Issues

“Branching Out From St. Clair County Illinois,” the Official Quarterly for the Marissa Historical and Genealogical Society, is published four times a year.  Every member will receive a quarterly as part of their membership fee.  The Quarterly is published in November, February, May and August.

Our quarterlies include genealogical and historical information from St. Clair, Randolph, and Washington Counties.

Members of the MHGS are encouraged to submit articles of historical or genealogical interest that they would like published in the quarterly.  We do not assume responsibility for errors or fact of judgment on the part of the contributor.

Back Issues of the quarterly are available for $10.00 per copy.

The MHGS encourages other societies to contact us about arranging an exchange.  Members of societies with whom we exchange quarterlies may submit one fee query per year.  Please inform us as to which society you belong when submitting your query.  Members of our society may submit as many queries per year as the desire.
