Maps and Photos

St. Louis Genealogical Society (StLGS) offers an increasing range of services and products related to maps and photos. It sells books and CDs and has map and photography services available to both members and the general public.

Research Service

The St. Louis Genealogical Society provides limited genealogical research in the St. Louis area. Research sources include: census indexes, death records, marriage records, obituaries from local newspapers, cemetery indexes, etc.

The Surname List

This website provides a list of names being researched by our members, along with the researcher's contact information. A member who submits surnames provides her/his name along with some combination of address, phone number, and e-mail address as contact information.

Office Volunteer Assistance

Visitors to the Society's office may request assistance with their family history research questions from our office volunteers. Among these volunteers is a great deal of expertise which we are happy to share with visitors to the office.

Researchers for Hire
