St. Louis Memories (Updated 11/10/2021)

As many of you know, on April 4, 2001, I posted a few memories I had of growing up in St. Louis. I received so many great replies that I thought I'd post some of them here.

He offers this document free of charge (but he does have a way to thank him for his 3 year effort via PayPal (which I used)). Give it a try.

"Genealogy in St. Louis" Database (Updated 8/11/2018)

One of my pet projects the last few years is the creation of a genealogical database in which everyone included is somehow related to St. Louis. In addition to my own personal and professional research I've entered data into a Legacy 9 database from the following sources:
