You have an amazing website and am completely impressed by the helpful links on your site. Much more helpful than even ancestry . com.


... you loaned me a St Louis 2006 phone book several months ago. I used the phone book along with my clues to search for my twin brothers who were given up for adoption in 1965. Well I owe you a HUGE thank you because by using your phone book I did indeed find my brothers!!! I would not have found them without that book!


I am writing you, like many of the other hundreds of people who have written, to thank you for your years of dedication to geneaology.


one of the many things i love abt genealogy- the utmost generosity of so many genealogists. thank you and a tip of my hat to you good sir.


I have very much enjoyed your information about St. Louis, MO genealogy. There is so much that I may never get to review it all.


Again THANKS DAVE LOSSOS for this AWESOME WEBSITE. God bless Dave Lossos!!!


Thank you so much! You are indeed a miracle worker.


I was just taking a look at your 'Genealogy in St. Louis' page. What an amazing amount of links.


Finding your site gave me new energy to forge ahead. All researching that family should be as lucky as I, to stumble upon your so very informative site.


Thank you for your wonderful website and the many hours of your time you dedicate to helping all of us trace our St. Louis roots.

Thank you for your wonderful efforts.


What a great web-site !!!!!!!


As usual, your Genealogy in StL site again proves to be one of the most invaluable resources for this St Louisan. Already chock-filled with countless avenues to help in search for my family history (and history of our glorious city) another gold nugget is thrown in the mix. And, thank you a thousand times over for your wonderful website. It is quite a treasure.


PS: Thank you for such a wonderful website.


Thank-you so much for the info. You do not know how much it will help us in tracing this family line back to Ireland. This gives us a much clearer place to start our search. Thank-you, Thank-you again for your kindness and help. May you be blessed a 100 times over.


Thank you for all your dedication and hard work to provide information to those of us seeking help with our St. Louis family histories. I am grateful for your web site.

Thank you for all your good work


First of all I just wanted to let u know, your web site ROCKS


Thanks again for this great site and all you do for the researchers.


You have a very cool very imformative web site, by the way. I love perusing it. Thanks for the opportunity.


I have truly enjoyed your website from the first day I was fortunate enough to it's access.


Thank you for all the work you put into your St. Louis site. I have found it very helpful over the years.


Love the website and the memories it has brought. Thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity to read and share.


I now live in Arizona, but the Memories, thanks to this website, of St.Louis remain with me.


You provide a remarkable service to us.


I have enjoyed using the early photographers of St. Louis information. I have several unidentified pictures of relatives that this site has helped me with.


I stumbled here looking for an old cemetery and found a wonderful site. This St. Louis site is the best I've seen.


I love your site and I have aquired very much information from it. I also enjoy learning more about the history of St. Louis.


Your St. Louis site is wonderful. Thank you for all your time & efforts.


I continually find something new or find another direction to find information from your site.


Thank you for ALL you do!!


I really appreciate all the work you do Dave.


Thank for your help and the information that you gave me, it turns out that this is the XXXXXX XXXXX XXXXX that we have been looking for. XXXXXX XXXXXX is the father of my sister-in-law. Since getting this information from you we have contacted Ernest who was absolutely delighted to make contact with his daughter who he hasn't seen for 65 years. He said that he had often thought of her and wondered how to contact her as he didn't know her adoptive surname. They have been corresponding regularly and talking on the phone. I know you usually only search for deceased people, so many many thanks for your help in going beyond your normal criteria it is really appreciated. You have helped her to fill in the empty space that she always felt was their. Again many many thanks.


Hi i love your web site. i can look at the history of st. louis all day. i love old photos. i'm a proud st. louis resident.


This is absolutely the BEST! I found it by accident and I keep coming back and find new and interesting things all the time. I grew up in St. Louis and I truly am proud to have had the childhood I had there in South St. Louis. Sounds like countless others do to!


Genealogy in St. Louis is AWESOME! I visit this so often, it is one of the best resources. Thanks for all that you do. I am forever digging to see what is new and it seems I always came back to you!


I am extremely impressed with all the work you have put into your website on St. Louis. I have been researching for over 30 years and must say you are one of the best.


I really appreciate the website you have. It is wonderful!


I use your site often -it's fabulous.


I LOVE your website!!


I use your site all the time. Thanks so much for running it.


I want to express my sincere thanks to you for all the work you have done in setting up your webpage with all the links for genealogy research in St. Louis.


I have been looking through your website for the past 3hrs. It is a wealth of information and very amazing.


Hey Dave, thanks again for your love of genealogy and St.Louis


I just found your website, and it obviously represents a lot of work, presenting a wealth of information. Thanks for all your good work.


First of all, I would like to say you have a wonderful website. I have referenced it many times. Thank you for all the great sources of information.


First off...awesome site! I have just gotten into geneology, and this site is front and center on my toolbar!


Love your website! So many of those wonderful memories shared by your readers are mine as well. They generate a cozy, familiar vibe.


I love to visit " Memories " as often as possible. It is a wonderful escape into the past.


Thank you very much for your Genealogy in St Louis


Thank you for all you have done for genealogy in St. Louis. Your site is truly amazing!


Just wanted to say how very much I've appreciated your websites. Both of my paternal grandparents were born & grew up in & around St.Louis in 1890's. They married in 1915 & raised their 3 sons in Webster Groves. And they lived there all their lives. I mention this so you can understand how much your St.Louis Portal sights have meant to me. Your pictures have helped me so much to put "a life" to their early lives. Your postcard site has been most informative. Again thank you for all your work. It is obviously a labor of love.


First of all, thanks for this website, Dave...........and what a great idea. It must take up a lot of your time. Hope everyone appreciates that.


Your Genealogy site gets better and better! Thanks for all that you're doing to preserve the history of our awesome city.


Thanks Dave for your site! I think you have really started something…..


Love your website!!!


I just wanted to tell you how much I like the new look of your St. Louis High School Senior Class List.


Dave, did you ever think your website would take off so big like this? what a great terrific place to visit.

7/5/2008
Thanks Dave for this great website that definitely joins all of us St. Louisans, no matter what state we live in.

7/2/2008
First and foremost I would like to send my sincere appreciation for you web site, truly amazing. I have been using it for genealogy research for a couple of years.

6/23/2008
Your website is wonderful. It has given me alot of help in tracing my Irish ancestors.

6/22/2008
Wow! You are gold mine of information. I am seeing your name and web links popping up everywhere.

6/17/2008
I love your website. It's a great resource.

6/17/2008
Thank you so much for your time and effort. I really enjoyed your site when my brother forwarded it to me.

5/22/2008
Hello Dave. I have never contacted you before but I have seen everything that you have put online. Very interesting. I am not a professional genealogist, but I have been doing my own personal family history for five years while at the same time having more that a full time job. I have visited the County and City Libraries as well as the Carondelete and Missouri Historical Societies, and the Civil Courts building and City Hall. I just a comment on the Missouri Historical Society--their card catalogs--(actually three different card catalogs) are not very easy to use. Sometimes things overlap. I have also found things in the catalogs that do not exist in their archives. One of the staff members told me that a couple of the cards that I had were wrong and removed them from the files. I'm beginning to think that they really don't know what they have. Just an observation.

5/1/2008
Your website is amazing!

1/6/2008
There isn't anyway that I can describe to you just how much joy and pleasure you have given us native St. Louis residents with your wonderful web-site. I can personally relive so many of the comments and places that have been mentioned by all of the people that have responded to you. I don't have any additional comments at this time, other than I certainly wish that our world and our city was the same as it was back in the 50's and 60's, back when people actually cared about each other and you didn't even have to lock your front door at night, and you actually knew the names of all of your neighbors. That is all I have to say at this time, except thank you Dave!

1/4/2008
I am enthralled with your website and thank you so much for creating it

1/3/2008
Thank you very much Dave. It's sad how things like this get lost between generations and it's great how people like you make it a point to keep the history alive.

12/28/2007
Thank you so much. I appreciate all your excellent contributions that allow me to learn so much more about my ancestors who lived their lives in St. Louis beginning in 1850. Since I left St. Louis at age 17, I must research from a distance. Your work has been a remarkable benefit to me.

12/22/2007
Thanks so very much for all you have done for researchers working on people in St. Louis. It is amazing all that you have done.

12/16/2007
Thank you so much for everything you do for all of us who are seeking our ancestors.

12/2/2007
I live in Tallahassee, Florida and greatly appreciate all the fabulous resources I've found through your website.

11/30/2007
Thank you for your great contributions to history

11/26/2007
First I like to tell you, that your site with all the links is for me in The Netherlands a great help.

11/25/2007
Dave you Da Man ! Thanks for the memories

11/25/2007
Great Site, Dave !!

11/17/2007
On another note, I am completely impressed with your web site. It makes me wish my family was from the St. Louis area. I have never seen a more inclusive genealogy web site. It obviously has taken much time and effort.

11/17/2007
First let me say that you have done a tremendous job of putting St. Louis genealogy resources online! Thank you for all the time and work you have put in

11/6/2007
Thanks for your quick response. I appreciate the time and energy that go into maintaining your website and the help you give those like me who don't know much about geneaology.

10/23/2007
I still love your website. I frequently check back to see what new things you have updated or added.

10/23/2007
Your site is absolutely spectacular and a real boon to amateurs such as myself.

10/21/2007
Just a short note to compliment you on the Titanic chore that you accomplished. Thank you again for all your efforts on our behalf.

9/5/2007
I absolutely love your site!

9/5/2007
Wow, Dave, that's a lot of work compiling all of that church information. Really, really useful information. Thank you!

9/5/2007
Thank you for the memories Dave. I am from maybe a newer generation that found your website while searching for a St. Louis park for my family to congregate this Memorial weekend.

8/10/2007
First I must tell you how immensely your websites have helped me in research of my parents and ancestors.

7/31/2007
First compliment on the web site. It is an excellent resource for those doing research in the St. Louis Area.

7/31/2007
A wonderful and comprehensive site. The power search feature is great. Thanks to all those who did transcription and to those who volunteer to do lookups.

7/30/2007
Many thanks for the info about free death indexes. They yielded many low cost & free certificates & tons of info. Thanks, thanks, thanks....

7/30/2007
First, thank you for all the good information I find at my fingertips.

7/30/2007
I just found your wonderful site with the even more wonderful offer to do a look-up in the 1875 St. Louis City Directory.

7/30/2007
I've been looking at your St. Louis site and it has a wealth of helpful information, especially as a large portion of my family has lived there from around 1850 through the present.

7/30/2007
I visited your web site tonight for the first time and just want to thank you. I am amazed at the breadth of information there, and found links to some sites of which I wasn’t aware. My ancestors came to St. Louis in the early 20th century, and I am mainly researching in other areas now, but I really enjoyed browsing your site, and will return.

7/14/2007
Your site is truly amazing. Not only is it splendid for St. Louis, it is useful generally. I got some exceptional summary historical information.

7/10/2007
You are a saint. Thank you so much for doing this work, so people can get in touch with their past. And perhaps mostly remember what will never be known, and in so doing honor something much greater.

7/10/2007
I check out your site all the time! Thanks!

7/2/2007
What a shame that the MHS doesn't recognize the huge contribution your website makes to the many people searching for St Louis information, myself included. I just wanted you to know that your website has been very helpful to me. I use it frequently. Thank you very much!!

7/2/2007
Dave I have seen all of your neat experience and knowledge. You indeed know tons of history and genealogy of St Louis. .

7/2/2007
Your site has saved endless hours of searching. One stop shopping in the genealogical world is priceless. Thanks!!

6/25/2007
You are really something. I am so excited about all you do.

6/25/2007
You are a phenomenon!

6/25/2007
Good afternoon Dave, thank you for all you do for others, it is appreciated.

6/25/2007

I just found your site and I love it.


1/1/2007
Not to long ago I asked for your assistance in locating a marriage record of my great-grandparents. You were kind enough to respond with the volume and page number.


1/1/2007
I applied for and received a copy of the information, just in time for Christmas! What a gift! It’s because of people like you who care enough to extend a helping hand that renews my faith in my fellow man. Thank you ever so much!


11/26/2006
By the way, your website is awesome! Even my genealogy teacher raves about your site and says I am so lucky to have so many ancestors from St. Louis


11/14/2006
You're one in a million, Dave. Thank you.


11/14/2006
I do a lot of free genealogy lookups, and I have never seen a more comprehensive personal website than your St. Louis one. Wow!


10/31/2006
I've tried looking for similar sites for different cities, and have yet to find anything as convenient and comprehensive as your site.


10/30/2006
Wow, what a tremendous site, If there was an Academy Awards for websites, you'd be busy snagging Oscars.


10/23/2006
Spending hours doing genealogy. Love it.
Spending hours doing St.Louis genealogy. Really love it.
Finding St. Louis memories on Dave's Genealogy site - priceless!

Dave,many thanks.You're a genius

8/22/2006
Thank you for providing this wonderful web site. For those of us who grew up in the St. Louis area but have since moved out of state this has been a great help.

8/20/2006
Your website is just wonderful!! I know you must help many people with it.

8/20/2006
This is an invaluable resource! Also great fun to read and remember those wonderful St. Louis days.

8/20/2006
Thanks for your hard work. You just don't know what it has meant.

8/1/2006
You and your website are invaluable!

7/31/2006
Fantastic site. Many, thanks, for what you have done for so many of us.

7/8/2006
As a native St. Louisan, your website is by far my favorite! Some of the St. Louis memories have me laughing and still others have me crying. I am impressed with the amazing amount of material you supply.

6/28/2006
This is the first time in almost 20 years I have found some confirmation other than family stories that he was in St Louis. You are a wonderful person to do lookups for us poor strangers. There is a special place in heaven for folks like you

6/27/2006
This is an awesome site! It’s probably the most useful I’ve ever seen.

6/24/2006
First of all, your website is incredible, thank you.

6/24/2006
...the website is fantastic. It has shown me the way to all kinds of productive databases and helpful people. Many, many thanks

6/17/2006
The amount of work you have put into your site is both massive and excellent. You should be very proud of your contribution to the people of St. Louis. It is by far the most outstanding site I seen and as a life long resident of St. Louis is brings back so many memories.

6/17/2006
Thanks to you, I have gained information concerning my grandfather and great grandfather in St. Louis, Mo.

6/8/2006
Dave, just started reading your Volume III but it's now 4:00 A.M. and I have to hit the hay.

6/8/2006
My God, Dave. I cried when I read some of the "memories" about St. Louis.

6/4/2006
I am still reading the "Memories" section of the site. You just have no idea what this means to me.

6/1/2006
I came across your site accidentally but, what a wonderful accident it turned out to be. I grew up in St. Louis and spent much of my youth playing in Tower Grove Park... I have so enjoyed reading your site. I don't know which streamed faster…the memories or my tears.

6/1/2006
I just wanted to say thank you! I discovered "Missouri Cemetery Inscription Sources" yesterday. The majority of my ancestors settled in Franklin, Gasconade and Jefferson Counties, so this is fascintating to me to see names I recognize. Later this summer, my daughter and I hope to get to the St. Louis area to see these ourselves. Wonderful to have a head start on where to look!

5/27/2006
Great web site! Lots of useful and interesting information.

5/26/2006
Bless you for preserving the history of St. Louis

5/24/2006
From everything I can tell, all roads lead to you for expertise in St Louis research

5/22/2006
Born and raised in St. Louis. Thank you for the beautiful memories and your effort to preserve them.

5/19/2006
Found your site today and really appreciate all of the data on the early churches. I plan on using this as a reference while compiling our family genealogy.

5/18/2006
I just can’t believe my luck nor can I thank you enough for the massive amount of excellent work you are doing.

4/13/2006
The best site I've come across in a long time.

3/14/2006
Gosh your site is wonderful!

3/13/2006

2/17/2006
I am amazed on what a wonderful job you have done!

2/17/2006
"Holy Cow...IT IS... a Home Run"! Your web-site, that is!

2/13/2006
I love your site..I am suffering from information overload, and I LOVE it. I really came here trying to find some certain info..but was side tracked for a couple hours.

2/12/2006
Google took me to your site. The detour from a question concerning military service in St. Louis during WWII has now gone on for more than three hours.

2/9/2006
To coin a phrase.."what a SITE!!!"

Only two words necessary to describe your site - THE BEST.


2/21/2004
WOW - your website is awesome! Best I've ever used! All of my ancestors lived in St. Louis from about 1850 forward, and your site has been my salvation - especially since I live far from your fine state. Thanks for all of the work you have done.

You still have the BEST website for St. Louis research going!!!!!!!!......

I am not really a dedicated geneology person like some. I like to know stories and background of the times not just who begot who. So your time has been of great benefit to me.

8/26/2003
I remember it all, after printing out and reading the 37 pages from your St. Louis Memories, I can't seem to find anything to add. I think that everything has been mentioned. Thank you for posting your memories and adding to the thread all those that others have sent to you. After reading St. Louis Memories, I don't feel that I'm by myself anymore with fond memories of growing up in St. Louis. I stumbled somehow on to your St. Louis web site and was just enthralled.

8/10/2003
Thanks. You're a jewel.
