Finding Your Ancestors at the Mo. History Museum Library & Research Center

Looking for something unique in St. Louis records? The Missouri History Museum Library and Research Center may have just what you need. Join associate archivist, Dennis Northcott, for an entertaining and informative look at the genealogical treasures stored at the L&R Center.

Dennis will talk about the repository and its fascinating contents on Wednesday, 6 February from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. at the Kirkwood Public Library, 140 East Jefferson Ave., Kirkwood, Mo.

The L&R Center has city directories, military records, company newsletters, school yearbooks, historic photographs, and newspapers, as well as extensive business records for St. Louis. Dennis will walk you through what you can find there, the ins and outs of doing on site research there, and how to get the most from the L&R's website. The workshop is open to all and is free. No pre-registration required.
