That includes St. Louisans Civil War-era loyalty oaths, early 20th-century yearbooks, Whos Who publications, local censuses, WWI service member questionnaires, newspaper clippings, church histories, business letterheads and others.
You can search the index by a persons name, business/corporate name, or street address (great for researching the history of your house and its former occupants).
Youll find a search tips link on each search formNorthcott suggests checking out those tips before you start.
Matches give source information for the resource the name or address appears in, then you can click to order a photocopy.
