MoSGA Web Site

M is for MoSGA, the Missouri State Genealogical Association, an organization dedicated to enhancing the knowledge of its members and the public in the study of family history, genealogical records and the principles of sound genealogical research.

MoSGA publishes The Journal,  a quarterly publication featuring transcriptions of Missouri records including county, church, Bible, and cemetery records to name a few. It also features historical and educational articles contributed by experts in the field. The Journal is online and can be searched by surname or topic.

The MoSGA Messenger, edited by Tom Pearson, is the Official Weblog of the Missouri State Genealogical Association. The Messenger is rich with links and news about changes in archives and online sources.

National speakers are on hand every year in August at the MoSGA Annual Conference.

I’m proud to say I’ve served on the MoSGA board, as webmaster, conference registration chair, and public relations director at various times.

You don’t have to live in Missouri to find useful information on the MoSGA web site.  We are in the center.

  3. A conservative estimate from Family Search says about 250,000 pioneers left Missouri on the California Trail and about 100,000 on the Oregon Trail, 1840-1880’s. Missouri was also the starting point for a trade route to Mexico – the Santa Fe Trail .

    Missouri has more than six million residents today.

  4. Very cool! I’ve had a great deal of genealogical research done on my family by some very dedicated relatives. It’s amazing the stories you unearth and the wonder of these people in the past. They are inspiring!

  5. H 🙂 That sounds really interesting! Both my husband and me want to try and find our geneology lines, but I think we’re a few years off of finding the time to do it!

    • Suzanne, even if you don’t have time to do any research, next time you attend a family gathering, visit with your older relatives and write down any stories or facts they share. Once they are gone – the stories are gone, too.
