Genealogy in St. Louis
This site, which is maintained by Dave Lossos, is actually a
well-organized and annotated links page. It lists sites helpful to people researching
ancestors who lived in St. Louis City or County. While it may be immodest to point out,
one of the links goes to the Librarys Obituaries, Death Notices, and Burial Permits
Index. Daves link allows you to do an overall name search of our obituary indexes
and our St. Louis historical indexes online, so it can be an incredible timesaver. Dave
also lists volunteers willing to do lookups in some important St. Louis genealogical
source materials, such as the prisoner lists for Civil War prisons in St. Louis and Alton,
Illinois. In addition, he has links to a number of important online maps of early
(1804-1912) St. Louis, plus other links too numerous to mention. Give this site a look! We
think youll be impressed!
If you are interested in Confederate guerrilla warfare in Missouri or
seeking information about a particular ranger or guerrilla, you need to look at this site.
You can learn about the equipment they used, songs they sang or listened to, and view a
map of the areas in Missouri in which partisans and guerrillas were active. If youre
looking for information on a particular partisan or guerrilla, there is a 69 page Roster
of Missouri Partisan Rangers (alphabetical by surname) which gives a bit of biographical
info about each ranger. There is also a great list of links to other sites which highlight
the Confederacy in Missouri and elsewhere is also available.
