Missouri Gold...a Preview of the Conference

Missouri Gold: Digging Deep 
into our Sources & Culture

2019 MoSGA Conference, August 3-4, Columbia, MO

This year the conference format will be different than past years - we will have two full days of events beginning at 10 AM on Friday, August 2 and running through mid-afternoon on Saturday.  We thought it was time to change things up!  We will still have great speakers with fresh ideas along with a few twists.  Stay tuned to this blog and our Facebook page for details.  We will have some exciting surprises in store for participants so join us in Columbia on August 2nd and 3rd! Register on MoSGA's website.  

One new event will be our Networking Desserts on Friday night after the buffet.  This fun networking opportunity will be held in a Salon filled with ephemera that is sure to spark conversation, memories and perhaps plant ideas for new avenues of discovery in your family tree.  We hope you will join us for the conference and especially this chance to network with like-minded ancestry-seekers.  For all the conference details and to register go to
