Missouri Family Histories and Genealogies: A Bibliography


Missouri Family Histories and Genealogies: A Bibliography - Donald M. Hehir. With over 1600 Missouri surnames, Mr. Hehir provides, in one source, a comprehensive listing of all printed Missouri genealogies and family histories that have made their way into major library collections across the U. S. The author researched library listings and catalogs covering many genealogical libraries, including the Library of Congress, the National Genealogical Society Library and the Library of the Daughters of the American Revolution, along with historical association libraries from Massachusetts to California. Many of the books deal with multiple families, some with non-Missouri roots. Arranged for ease of use, the entries are presented alphabetically according to surname, with a cross-reference index to family and secondary names to help researchers find surnames that would otherwise remain buried within the text. No genealogist working with Missouri families should be without this time-saving volume. The author has also added an appendix with helpful hints on "Accessing the Library of Congress Records via the Internet."
