A Meeting in St. Louis
2/1/2004
The home of the Arch and ragtime hosts the GENTECH conference in January. While you're there, follow our guide to genealogy research in the Gateway City.

If your ancestors were lured west by the notion of abundant land and riverfront trade, chances are they settled in or near St. Louis, or at least passed through town. Known as the “Gateway to the West,” the city is rich in genealogical treasures — making it an ideal destination for NGS GENTECH 2004 <www.eshow2000.com/gentech>, scheduled for Jan. 22-24. This conference, organized by the National Genealogical Society's (NGS) genealogy-technology division, promises to lure hundreds of genealogists to meet their ancestors in St. Louis. History buffs will be flocking here, too, as the city celebrates the bicentennial of the Lewis and Clark expedition.

If you'll be among those genealogical and historical adventurers, don't blaze a trail through the city on your own: With so many resources, deciding where to spend your conference downtime can be tough. So grab your city map, gather your research materials, and take this handy guide on your pilgrimage.
