Finding Your Ancestors at the Library & Research Center

The Library & Research Center holds a wealth of resources that tell the stories of our St. Louis ancestors. City directories, military records, company newsletters, school yearbooks, historic photographs, and newspapers are just some of the sources explored in this entertaining and informative look at the genealogical treasures that could shed some light on your personal history.


Dennis Northcott is a native St. Louisan who has been on the staff of the Missouri Historical Society library and archives since 1989. He has compiled numerous guides to the society’s manuscript collections, including an inventory of the extensive Civil War holdings. He is the creator of the Genealogy and Local History Index, an ever-growing index that provides access to genealogical sources in the library and archives. He frequently gives presentations on genealogy, house history, and other topics.
