Missouri Announces Free Genealogy Workshops

Thanks to archivist, Mike Everman, for sharing this important announcement from Jefferson City.

The Missouri State Archives reference staff will provide instruction on how best to use lesser-known county, state, and federal records in a series of workshops for intermediate-level genealogists. According to the press release, these day-long workshops are "intended for intermediate level family historians already possessing a basic understanding of genealogical research sources and methods." Included will be many unusual record sets, such as appellate court documents, non-population census records, professional registration records, and much more.

Multiple locations around the state offer a chance for many people to attend, but, although the workshops are free, pre-registration is required. Maximum attendance at each venue will be determined by the size of the space available.

  1. Hannibal: Wednesday, 15 August, 9 a.m. till 4 p.m. at the Mark Twain Boyhood Home and Museum, 120 N. Main Street
