Our next meeting will be Saturday, 8 September 2018 at 10 a.m. in the auditorium at St. Louis County Library Headquarters. The meetings, co-sponsored by the St. Louis Genealogical Society and the St. Louis County Library, are free and open to the public.

Join us for an exploration of “Cities of the Dead for the Living: The Rural Cemetery Movement.” Jeff Smith, an instructor from Lindenwood University will reveal the origins and history of the rural cemetery movement in the nineteenth century and the ways these burial sites were intended to be used by the living, as well as the cultural values they conveyed.

Please Note: Doors open at 9:30 a.m. and the meeting will start promptly at 10 a.m.
