You'll have fun with these Missouri books!  These are all that are left of past long crates at this time, but I  buy a few more books everywhere I go and some of them are almost bound to be Missouri books!   

 

After you have had a chance to check these with all the new things I have bought in the last several years added, what is left goes on the website. I will add any new books I receive to this WEBSITE Edition space, so be sure to check out our new MISSOURI web page to go up, hopefully by the end of October!  Some facts the wise Missouri ancestor-hunter, aka (also known as) a genealogist, needs to know!

 

MISSOURI'S CAPITAL IS IN JEFFERSON CITY, MO.    

MISSOURI BECAME A TERRITORY IN 1812.  

MISSOURI ACHIEVED STATEHOOD IN 1821.  

MISSOURI HAS 114 COUNTIES.

 

 

BIRTH AND DEATH RECORDS:  County Clerks were required to register them from 1883 to 1893.  Copies of those records which are still extant 

may be ordered from the county clerk in that respective county or

from the Missouri State Archives at:1001 Industrial Drive, Jefferson City, Missouri, 65102,  or at their Post Office Box 778,  Jefferson City, MO 65102.  

 

State registration of Births and Deaths began in 1863, but was not fully implemented until 1911. Records after 1910 can be obtained from:  

The Bureau of Vital Records, Post Office Box 570,Jefferson City, MO 65102

[Questions? Call them at: 573-751-6400.]

 

MARRIAGE RECORDS AND DIVORCE RECORDS:  Marriages, some from as early as 1825, to the present were, and are, kept by the Office of the Recorder of Deeds in each county.  

Divorce proceedings may be found in the Court of Common Pleas, a Circuit Court or the State Legislature.  Try the Circuit Court Clerk first.  

LAND RECORDS:  Local land records are in the Missouri State Archives.  For tract books, plat maps and Land Patents, try the Bureau of Land 

 Management, Eastern States Office at 350 South Pickett Street in Alexandria, Virginia 22304.  

CENSUS RECORDS:  As early as 1772 some early Spanish censuses have been found and parts of Missouri were counted in the 1810 Louisiana 

Territory Census.  Missouri Territory Censuses were taken in 1814, 1817, and in four-year intervals, thereafter, from 1825 to 1863 and again in 1876.  Federal Censuses for Missouri began in 1830 and run every ten years, except for 1890, to the year 2010 with all census entries restricted for 75 years after being taken except for the actual one line on which the petitioning person-a single individual, himself or herself-is listed. Copies would likely be found at: The State Historical Society, 1020 Lowry, Columbia, Missouri 65201.  This is an excellent library.  Having spoken and displayed our books there, I know how helpful their library can be.
These census records may also be found on Ancestry.com and at The Missouri State Archives (See address above).  
    
[Pat's notes.  For the Midwest genealogist check out the St. Louis County Public Library which hosts the Library of the National Genealogical Society on its second floor as well as a considerable genealogical
collection of its own.  Check out as well, the City of St. Louis Library.  Then there is also the brand-new revised, updated and mammoth new library in Independence, Missouri.  Kansas City Public Library has the Heart of America Society Collection.  Jefferson City has the Missouri State Archives and the Bureau of Vital Records.  The Library of the Missouri State Genealogical Society is located in Columbia, Missouri.  Springfield, Missouri, also has a large and well organized and growing, growing, growing genealogical library.  Don't miss any one of these if you are in their neighborhood!]

MO-YOGS - GUIDEBOOK 01:  GKS - MISSOURI GENEALOGICAL RESEARCH.  By Dr. George K. Schweitzer. Ph.D., Sc.D., A 233-page book, 6" x 9" in size, laminated cardstock covers, wrappers, containing 1,342 sources for tracing your MO ancestors along with detailed instructions for their use.  Chapters include #1 MO background information on history and geography.  #2 Missouri List of Types of Records, thirty-five, in all.  Plus directions, hints and tips for using them!  [I don't care how long you have been searching for genealogical clues to your family relationship puzzle, it never hurts to review procedures, record types and locations!  Are you searching for all thirty-five of them? Can you name even ten of them? You will not have thoroughly researched any county until you have searched ALL extant documents in all thirty-five types of records for your surnames in the time period they were living there!  If it is there, you need it to add to your collection!  I found out several things about one of my ancestors when the town of  Greensburg's newspaper wrote an article about the party the town held for my Drake ancestors on the occasion of their 72nd Wedding Anniversary.  It was placed above the headline on the first page!  The main thing I found out was they had had ten children, all of whom not only survived, but attended the party!  Up to that time I had only located eight of them! Bless the paper's heart, they published the children's names and current addresses in that article.  You never know which of those 35 records will hold just exactly what you have been looking for, or a huge surprise, until you look for it!

 

[Big Job, isn't it?]  Thank goodness, you have the books and with their authors and publishers, you have help!]  

#3 - MO Locations of the Records.  This chapter tells you
where to find the records. Answers to ["What repository has the particular documents you want to see, [in the original, if at all possible."]  Handwriting was difficult to read in the olden days even when it was newly done.  Ink was, many times, handmade at home and varied greatly from batch to batch.  These documents have been copied not once, but as the books wore out, they were often just recopied into new books from the older books, instead of going back to the originals, thereby, giving yet another opportunity for the information to be changed from the original.]  

#4. [My Favorite Part!]  Research Procedures to use and detailed listings of the records each county has and where they are located in each of Missouri's's 114 Counties.] [BEST BUY IN THE SHOP FOR $12.] That's less than 1 for each hint!  Multiple copies are available.

MO - YOGS - GUIDEBOOK 03:  GENEALOGICAL RESOURCES BOOK - MISSOURI GENEALOGICAL RESOURCES By Charles M. Franklin, YOGS, 1997, 18 pages, 8 by ll inches, cardstock covers, stapled.  The territory that is now Missouri started its life as a haven for diusplaced Native Americans.  The paintings by Winter that are part of an art collection located in Washington, D.C. depict their early lives.  The French, who ranged up and down the Mississippi River Valley, claimed it for their country in 1682.  France ceded the area now known as Missouri to Spain in 1763, but the French settled down in what became St. Louis in 1764 

anyway!  Sainte Genevive was established as an original district in 1787.  People from Kentucky, North Carolina and South Carolina, Tennessee  and Virginia began to settle there by 1795.  In 1800 Spain returned the area to France.  The United States purchased the land from France as a part of the Louisiana Purchase made in 1803.  There are many more details in this book.  There is a brief paragraph about Religion in Missouri.  A more detailed history of the Vital Records follows.  Census Records and Tax Records precede an explanation of Probate Records, Follow up information on Land and Property Records and Military Records is next.  What you need to know about Naturalization Records and Divorce Records brings this section to a close.  
Archives and Library information follows for 55 of them.  A visit to their websites will bring you up to date on hours open and collections held in each one.  The on-line  capability and collection of these two types of repositories varies widely from year-to-year.  Next, he covers 184 Genealogical and Historical Societies.  Then he lists 109 Periodicals including information from particular areas which will help to focus your attention on the specific areas in which your ancestors lived.  My favorite part of his books are the last section which contains a chronological list of the counties by their formation date.  Added information gives date of creation, Courthouse Address and Zip Code and telephone number!  Aren't you now ready to go on vacation to Missouri to chase a few ancestors?  Where else can you get all this for the price of $5?  Multiple copies are available.  

MO - YOGS - GUIDEBOOK 04: STATEWIDE:  TRACING FAMILY TREES IN ELEVEN STATES.  By Members of the St. Louis Genealogical Society.  1970.  The Eleven States to which this title refers are these:  Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky,  Virginia, Georgia, Ohio, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Indiana.  




[You know, Dr. George Schweitzer has a book on every one of these states, priced at $12 each.  If you
have research in any of these states, buy his book first.  It is the best buy in my store for that state! [Sorry, we are out of stock on two of these, Kentucky and Pennsylvania can be ordered directly from him at Dr. George Schweitzer, 407 Ascot Court, Knoxville, TN 37923-5807.]   Most of you have research to do in many of these states and his book is a wonderful way to keep basic information on each of them together.] 

This book, by the St. Louis Genealogical Society is hardbound in beautiful green library binding, it has 290 pages, and is stuffed to the gills with what you need to find the answers to your genealogical questions.  It is a clue to what these society members can do to help you.  The books to which it refers are sitting on the shelves of the society's library today.  Hundreds of them are listed in this book with their library call numbers to assist you in a quick retrieval of that book from those shelves.  Many people in this country will find this book covers their main areas of research with helpful information and a list of "I've got to take a look at that book as soon as possible." items. [Remember what I keep saying, over and over,  "A good researcher will want to look at every piece of research material, primary and secondary research items, that were created in the time period your ancestor was in that county and for every county he and/or she lived in during his or her lifetime.  If you don't know that a book or article exists, you won't know to ask for it! If you don't know what repository has it, you may not think to go there to ask for it, and the key to your family puzzle will never be discovered - by you, anyway!  What a shame if you don't make the effort to find all you can!  PRICE:  $20 Only one copy is available.


[Pat's Notes  Many of you already know what a great city St. Louis is for genealogists with the St. Louis City Public Library and now with the St. Louis County Public Library that now houses their own massive collection and also the National Genealogy Society's Library.  Plan a day-trip or a short vacation and check out St. Louis.  If your children aren't interested in genealogy, send them to  the zoo, one of the best in the world, with Grandma or Grandpa, or their Daddy, and you have a ball at the library.  There is a lot to see in St. Louis and your entire family could enjoy the trip.  If you live on the west side of the state, you can go to Kansas City and the Mid-Continent Public Library in Independence, MO.  Don't miss going to the old Farmer's Market to see the paddle wheel boat that a family of plumbers dug up out of  the field that used to be under the Missouri River. They  froze the items to preserve them, and then remodeled the old Farmer's Market to see what they had found and display them so you can see what they found, too!!  That Museum fascinated our 10 year-old grandson [who is now 32 years old] and my, now in their eighties-
sister-in-law and brother, who were in their sixties back then, too.  Our entire party spent the whole day there!  We have been there twice, and will go again should we get there once more!  This book with almost 300 pages is priced at only $25.

MISSOURI STATE CENSUS RECORDS  

*****     *****     *****     *****     *****

 


YOGS 1830 CENSUS INDEX FOR THE STATE OF MISSOURI.  Editor, Ronald Vern Jackson.  A.I.S. [Accelerated Indexing Systems/], 1976.  The United States Federal Census is an important part of any genealogist's effort to get his ancestor's information in order from as much of the census years as he/she lived through!  The first census was taken in 1790, and every tenth year after that.  In most cases these census records are available on line at Ancestry. com.  In most cases you can look at your ancestor's name, and find an entry, more likely dozens of surname and first name listings, then sort them by year.  Remember to look at the original microfilm of the census entry.  Translations may be in error.  Handwriting from that time was hard to read, ink varied in quality, and we have all heard of, and found, horrible spelling or mis- interpretations of surnames over the years.  According to something I read somewhere, in the North Carolina Census book, I think, the census taker in one state in 1790 was paid 1 per name, and remember, the only name they wrote down was the head of household, so to earn $1 he would have to find and record 100 names belonging to 100 families!  The enumerators of this, the 1830 census of Missouri were to send one copy of this census to the Secretary of State and file another with the district court. He was also supposed to post two copies prominently in his district.  The census of 1830 only required that one name - the name of the Head of Household was to be written down, but much additional information was required!  Along the left side or across the top of the paper the name of the county, city, ward, township, parish, hundred, or district was required.  That took care of the WHERE part.  

 

The WHO was even harder!  The first line took care of the head of household, whose name was written down, usually surname first, and then, a given/first name written next, following that was maybe, a middle initial, or name, or title such as Esq[uire], D[octo]r, etc.  The eight columns following THE NAME had subcolumn divisions.  The first column was for FREE WHITE PERSONS [INCLUDING HEADS OF FAMILIES] with 13 divisions for age groupings AND DIVIDED BY SEX; in 1830 they read like this for the first column:

FREE WHITE PERSONS [INCLUDING HEADS OF FAMILIES]

1.  Free white males under 5 years;
2.  Free white males of 5 years and under 10;
3.  Free white males of 10 years and under 15;
4.  Free white males of 15 years and under 20;
5.  Free white males of 20 years and under 30;
6.  Free white males of 30 years and under 40;
7.  Free white males of 40 years and under 50;
8.  Free white males of 50 years and under 60;
9.  Free white males of 60 years and under 70;
10. Free white males of 70 years and under 80;
11. Free white males of 80 years and under 90;
12. Free white males of 90 years and under 100;
13. Of 100 and upwards.

The second column is subdivided into the same 13 columns by the age groupings as given above except this column is for FREE WHITE FEMALES, so it looks like this:

FREE WHITE PERSONS [INCLUDING HEADS OF FAMILIES]

1.  Free white females under 5 years;
2.  Free white females of 5 years and under 10;
3.  Free white females of 10 years and under 15;
4.  Free white females of 15 years and under 20;
5.  Free white females of 20 years and under 30;
6.  Free white females of 30 years and under 40;
7.  Free white females of 40 years and under 50;
8.  Free white females of 50 years and under 60;
9.  Free white females of 60 years and under 70;
10. Free white females of 70 years and under 80;
11. Free white females of 80 years and under 90;
12. Free white females of 90 years and under 100;
13. Of 100 and upwards.

The third column[males] and the fourth column [females] are for the enumeration of SLAVES, but the age columns look like this and are the same for both males and females:

Third Column: SLAVE MALES:

1.  Under 10 years of age;
2.  Of 10 and under 24;
3.  Of 24 and under 36;
4.  Of 36 and under 55;
5.  Of 55 and under 100;
6.  Of 100 and upwards.

Fourth Column SLAVE  FEMALES:

 1.  Under 10 years of age;
2.  Of 10 and under 24;
3.  Of 24 and under 36;
4.  Of 36 and under 55;
5.  Of 55 and under 100;
6.  Of 100 and upwards.
The fifth and sixth column are alike for both males and females and their age groupings are the same as the third and the fourth just seen above.  However they are for FREE COLORED PERSONS and sorted by sex with a set of age column for males and the same age divisions as for males for the females. 

Fifth Column FREE COLORED PERSONS MALES

1.  Under 10 years of age;
2.  Of 10 and under 24;
3.  Of 24 and under 36;
4.  Of 36 and under 55;
5.  Of 55 and under 100;
6.  Of 100 and upwards.

Sixth Column FREE COLORED FEMALES

1.  Under 10 years of age;
2.  Of 10 and under 24;
3.  Of 24 and under 36;
4.  Of 36 and under 55;
5.  Of 55 and under 100;
6.  Of 100 and upwards.
 
The seventh and eighth columns are for the persons included in the first two columns only.  The first subcolumn is for white persons, No division by sex was required for this column.  All are included in the following inquiry - 1. Who are deaf and dumb under 14 years of age.
Inquiry - 2.  Who are deaf and dumb of the age of 14 and under 25.
Inquiry - 3.  Who are deaf and dumb of 25 and upwards.
Inquiry - 4.  Who are blind.
Inquiry - 5.  Aliens - foreigners not naturalized.
The eighth column is for SLAVES AND COLORED PERSONS INCLUDED IN THE FOREGOING:  Again no division for sex applies to these columns.  All are included.
inquiry - 1. Who are deaf and dumb under 14 years of age.
Inquiry - 2.  Who are deaf and dumb of the age of 14 and under 25.
Inquiry - 3.  Who are deaf and dumb of 25 and upwards.
Inquiry - 4.  Who are blind.

Bet you didn't know all of that information was included in the early census of 1830, did you?


The following is a list of the counties as per the 1830 census of Missouri with the corresponding National Archives microfilm number.  From Microfilm roll number 72, you will be finding people living within the 1830 boundaries of these counties:  Lincoln, Marion, Chariton, Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, Gasconade, Crawford, Cole, Montgomery, Pike, St. Charles, St. Louis, Ste. Genevieve, Perry, St. Francois and Cape Girardeau.

The Counties of Scott, New Madrid, Wayne, Callaway, Boone, Howard, Cooper, Saline, Lafayette, Clay, Jackson, Randolph, Madison, Ralls and Ray will be found on Microfilm #73.

This index to the 1830 census of Missouri is printed in four columns.  Column One lists in alphabetical order the names of the individual heads of household found in the original census record. Surname is first, first name follows the comma [Sample: Allen, Frank J.]  The second column contains a four-letter abbreviation code for each county.  This code is usually the first four letters of the county name, [Sample:  Cape would mean Cape Girardieu.]  The third column holds the page number of the microfilm roll on which this name is appears.  The fourth column gives the first eight letters, or spaces, of the census division within each county.  The code "NO TWP L" stands for the phrase "no township listed" which means no census division was indicated on the page where the head of household is listed.  So now you can read the total entry [Sample:  Allen, Frank J.   Cape   462  NO TWP L] as Frank J. Allen will be found in Cape Girardeau County on page 462, but no further division of the county is noted.  There are 138 names in each of 4 columns, so that makes 552 names on each page.  Times 47 pages equals 25,944 and the last page adds up to 26,122 names!  If you want to see if any of yours are among these, buy this book and get them all.  Thousands of people went through Missouri, stayed awhile and then moved further west.  This book is now out of print.  It is hardbound and the price is only $25 for the whole over 26,000 names.  This is the easiest way to catch a misspelling of a name.  Cast your eye up and down the page, check for a translator who confuses a 'L' and an 'S'.  If you have this book, you have them covered from Abair, Charles to Zutheric, James. And everyone in between, too!  PRICE $25

We have come to a breaking point here at the end of the current Guidebooks and the State Census books.  On Friday we will begin with the County materials.  You're going to like that!  See you then!  Thank you for reading this newsletter.  

Oh, if you plan a trip to see some of these libraries and you are taking your family, please get some kind of a guidebook for all the wonderful places and attractions there are to see in Missouri!  There are caves, animal parks-great big ones, plus the St. Louis Zoo, so big they have open bus cars running routes to move you from one area to another, beats walking!  There are Route "66" attractions, stop at Rolla and see the garage where they restore beautiful antique cars [We were lucky enough to see the beautiful early Dusenburg owned by Dick Van Dyke's brother brought in for a touch up job on the red trim lines!] and so many neat things to see in every trip.  If you can make a genie trip combined with a family trip, spend some time in Branson.  From a very neat amusement center, to old-fashioned craft stores full of beautiful things to buy and Broadway shows and fantastic dancing and comedy reviews, this town is awesome.  I have spent five weeks in five years of vacation time in Branson between genealogy seminars, and I thoroughly enjoyed every day of the trip.  Check it out for yourself!  The scenery is beautiful, mostly the weather is fine, the antique stores are full of wonderful objects, the food is from good all the way to fantastic! This state has it all.  The whole state is people friendly and you and your family will love the trip. 

I know Ray and I always did.
