In honor of Missouri’s 200th birthday in 2021, St. Louis Genealogical Society initiated a St. Louis City/County Biographies project to commemorate former St. Louisans. This is an ongoing project. We encourage everyone to submit short biographies and accompanying photos of their St. Louis City/County ancestors. Would you like more information on this exciting project and complete instructions on how to submit your biographies and photos? If so, please click on the blue button. Submit a Bio button

What if you want to contact the author of a biography? Send a note to our members’ research service, Ask Louie (, and one of our volunteers will contact the author, who can then contact you. You can to email Ask Louie.


Biographies are indexed in two ways. First, if you just want to browse a list of the subjects of individual biographies, there is a master list that you can access here. Note that women in the list are linked by their married surnames.

The second set of indexes below includes every person mentioned in every biography. Click on the appropriate letter range below to access these alphabetical indexes. If you find a name of interest, click on the link in the last column to read the biography in which they are mentioned. Note that the main subjects of each biography are in the Surname column in all CAPS. A yes in the Images column indicates that photos or other images are included in the biography.
