Missouri Genealogy Help

Vital records, as their name suggests, are connected with central life events: birth, marriage, and death. Maintained by civil authorities, these public records are prime sources of genealogical information. These records are critically important in genealogy research, often supplying details on family members well back into the nineteenth century.

There are many sources for birth, death and marriage events that are not in the Missouri vital records office. Cemeteries, church records, newspapers, military records, immigration and naturalization records, as well as family records in letters and Bibles, are all places where evidence of vital events might be found. Once Missouri vital records have been researched, and especially if none are available for the location and time period required, a good procedure would be to try to locate your Missouri ancestors using Missouri census records.

Every state has a division charged with the responsibility of maintaining and dispersing public information from its vital record holdings. Each state page on this website indicates the availability of birth records, marriage records, death records, and divorce records and the agencies responsible for maintaining them.
