Government records come in all shapes and sizes. The early settlers produced federal, state, and local government records. Every ten years the federal government collects census information; however, in the past, state and local governments recorded census data. This portion of RESEARCH IN ST. LOUIS offers available records at all three levels of government.

Federal records include census, Works Project Administration, Civilian Conservation Corps, early postal records, land grants, post 1906 naturalizations, immigration, and military indexes.

State records include birth, census, courts, deaths, and military indexes.

Local records include census, coroner, court, fire and police, land, pre-1906 naturalization, probate, taxation, and voter registration indexes.
