SAVE THE DATE!!! MoSGA Conference will be August 3-4, 2019


Missouri Gold: Digging Deep into the Past with Modern Tools
2019 MoSGA Conference, August 3-4, Columbia, MO


We are very excited about our annual conference that will be held at Stoney Creek Inn in Columbia, MO on August 3-4, 2019.  We are offering a different format this year that will focus on how to best utilize the ever changing technology tools, access Missouri’s rich state resources, and get a refresher on where to find those pesky relatives that prefer to hide behind brick walls.  We have invited some of the top genealogical experts Missouri has to offer from St. Louis, Kansas City, Cape Girardeau and all points in between.  

Included this year:
  • Updates to Ancestry.com and FamilySearch – they have some great new tools!
  • Missouri Resources such as the amazing new Center for Missouri Studies that opens in August
  • Tips for Missouri First Families and Lineage Societies
  • Finding Records for Migration to Missouri from Germany, Virginia and Kentucky
  • How to Find our Female Ancestors
  • How to find our family members in land records, manuscripts and online newspapers
  • A fresh look at immigration and census records
  • A great book sale with many hard-to-find treasures
  • And much more!!!


We will have some fun, too.  On Friday evening join us for dinner and stay for Networking Desserts where we will display some old items to jog memories and invite stories to be told.  Bring your best ideas and prepare to share!  We want everyone to leave the conference will new ideas for their research, new friends and a renewed feeling she AND he can break down any brick wall or get one step closer to the cherished past.  Watch for updates on the MoSGA website, our Facebook page and this blog.  We will announce the full agenda and let you know when registration is open.  


See Y’all in August!
