Missouri Genealogy Records

Many people today are interested in learning more about their past and their ancestors. As a result Genealogy is one of the most common terms in search engines on the World Wide Web. For those who are new to the world of Genealogy, there are many ways one can find information regarding their ancestors. Some of the most common forms of public records used for genealogy are: For Birth Records In Missouri, birth records are maintained by the Bureau of Vital Records and have birth records as far back as 1910. For Death Records In Missouri, vital records like death records are originally collected and maintained by the Bureau of Vital Records. This office maintains records for the last 50 years, after which they're sent to the Missouri State Archives. This institution has records dating back consecutively from 1910, and many older records as well. For Obituaries The good people of Missouri have done a fantastic job of putting obituaries online for people all around the world to see. Many local libraries and newspapers have devoted hundreds of man hours to copying and scanning Missouri obituaries and as time passes, there will be even more of them online for people to view. You can start your search for Missouri obituary records by checking in with the Adair County Historical Society and their comprehensive website. They feature listings published in the Kirksville Daily Express. The Cass County Historical Society has a similar site set up that republishes listings that appeared in newspapers from across the area. The Houston Herald newspaper has a section of their website that allows for easy browsing of obits from 1949 to present day. The Jefferson County Library also has a massive number of obits online you can browse from 1999-2004. Macon County has a page on USGenWeb that keeps track of many of that area's listings, and you can also check the McDonald County Library for listings in that area that date from several decades ago. One final place to look is the official state archives webpage for listings that go back before 1909. For Marriages In Missouri the Bureau of Vital Records has a marriage index, which dates back to 1948. The county where the event occurred is the only state agency that will have the Missouri marriage records you're looking for older.
