Journal of the Society

The society publishes a scholarly journal, the StLGS Quarterly, four times per year. This journal began in 1968 and continues to the present. It includes original articles, book reviews, record transcriptions, queries, and other items of interest. A subscription to the StLGS Quarterly is a benefit of membership.

Back Issues

StLGS Members: StLGS Quarterly issues from Volume 1 (1968) to Volume 40 (2007) are now available online but only to StLGS members, so be sure to log into this website. To make the back issues easier to navigate, StLGS volunteers have created a set of indexes: author, subject, surname, title, and volume/page numbers. Click here to go to the Quarterly Back Issues page and use the Members section for access to the actual journals. Plans are underway to add the missing issues, and eventually all issues of the Quarterly will be online.

Non-Members: StLGS Quarterly issues from Volume 1 (1968) to Volume 40 (2007) are only available to members of the society. To make these back issues easier to navigate, StLGS volunteers have created a set of indexes: author, subject, surname, title, and volume/page numbers. We welcome you to use the indexes on the Quarterly Back Issue page in the Non-Members section to determine whether there are articles of interest in these journals. Click here to go to the Quarterly Back Issues page and use the Non-Members section for access to the indexes.

Single back issues of the StLGS Quarterly are available as electronic files (PDFs) and can be sent as emails upon request. A limited number of printed issues of the StLGS Quarterly are kept at the office and may be purchased for $5.00 each (which includes postage and handling). Articles may be duplicated from these issues for ten cents per page, plus postage and handling, if mailed. Please contact the society office at office@stlgs.org for specific needs.

Manuscripts

We encourage article submissions from our members. The StLGS Quarterly editor will consider publishing any submission that has merit to genealogical research with an emphasis on the St. Louis area. This may include, but is not limited to:

  • Reference articles
  • How-to articles
  • Travel articles
  • Personal recollections, such as diaries or memoirs
  • Genealogies of families related to the St. Louis area
  • Pictorial presentations
  • Technology and how it relates to genealogy

Manuscripts should be submitted electronically in Microsoft Word or Pages for the Mac. Text should follow The Chicago Manual of Style, latest edition. Endnotes should follow Elizabeth Shown Mills, Evidence! Citation & Analysis for the Family Historian (Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing Co., 1997). Please refer to the “Guidelines for Publication” for more information about the types of articles accepted and their preferred formats. Click on the blue link for an Acrobat Reader (PDF) version of the Guidelines for Publication.

Questions about submissions and/or articles sent as MS Word attachments may be sent to the StLGS Quarterly editor at quarterly@stlgs.org.

We recommend reviewing previous issues of the Quarterly for a sense of the kinds of articles that will be of interest to our readers.

Queries

Members may submit one query of up to 50 words per year, based on the date of publication, at no charge. They may submit additional queries or queries of more than 50 words by paying $3.00. Non-members may submit a query for $3.00 for up to 50 words.

Queries in digital format should be sent as email or MS Word attachments via email to the StLGS Quarterly editor at quarterly@stlgs.org.
