An essential part of the St. Louis Genealogical Society’s Mission is to provide educational services.


The Society offers a wide variety of genealogical and Internet classes at the office, taught by experienced genealogical instructors. All classes are open to the public. A beginning genealogy class covers traditional genealogical basics and is free to members. Click here for a current schedule.
