Recently Digitized Atlases at the Missouri Historical Society

 

Featuring Emily Jaycox, Missouri Historical Society

 

Saturday, 8 June 2024, 10:00 a.m. (Central)

 

Please Note: The in-person meeting will be held at the Grant’s View branch of the St. Louis County Library.
A link to a Google map with directions is here.

Also Note: This meeting will be livestreamed but NOT recorded.

The Missouri Historical Society received grants in 2022 and 2023 to digitize previously undigitized atlases (mostly plat books showing land ownership) covering St. Louis city, county, and beyond. MHS librarian Emily Jaycox will review the online research guide to those digitized maps, which cover the time period from 1829 to 1909. Even if your ancestors didn’t own land, these maps may help you better understand the neighborhoods where they lived.
