Genealogy

Do you have a story?

MRRL Needs Family Stories!!!
Missouri River Regional Library is looking for a few good family stories. As part of the 2012 Capital Read, A Good American, the library is looking for family stories of ancestors who immigrated to Mid-Missouri from Germany.

“We are hoping to create a program in October where people can share these stories and photographs and perhaps read from letters or journals they may have,” said Claudia Schoonover, assistant director of public services. “I am very excited about this project and eager to hear from families.”

The 1940 Census Data Is Out!

For those of you who enjoy genealogy and tracking down your ancestors, the 1940 Census data has been released! Don't forget that we have two databases that also have Census data in them (though not the 1940 data - yet). Both the Heritage Quest (available from home!) and Ancestry databases are paid for by the library for you, as our patrons, to use!
