        1. Who

          The St. Louis Genealogical Society (StLGS) is a not-for-profit, all volunteer organization with members in almost every state and several foreign countries. Begun in 1968, it is now the largest local genealogical society in the United States, renowned for its excellence in programming, resources, classes, and membership services. The society is managed according to a set of bylaws and a mission statement: The society promotes family history research by providing educational and research opportunities, offering community services in related fields, and collecting, preserving, and publishing genealogical and historical records.

          What

          The society office houses a small research library, computers with genealogical software, and microforms for St. Louis area research. Society members help people research family history by teaching classes, making presentations, and answering questions via our Ask Louie service. Society volunteers preserve historical records and make the information available to researchers through indexing projects and publications. StLGS also sponsors several Special Interest Groups (SIGs) for those sharing a particular ethnic heritage. Current groups include German and Irish. StLGS has a comprehensive, professional website, continuously updated and easy to search and navigate. In addition to schedules of events and classes, the site contains information on hundreds of thousands of past St. Louis area residents. Our Products area offers family history books, CDs, and other publications for sale. An exclusive Members-Only section features many family history resources and unique databases. Society members also receive a scholarly publication, our Quarterly journal

          Why

          As explained in our mission statement above, the reason for the society’s existence it to promote family history research through education and service. Reaching out to the community and collecting, preserving, and publishing genealogical and historical records help us to fulfill our mission. Because of the ongoing efforts of StLGS, thousands of people have learned more about building their family histories and a wide variety of records have been preserved and shared.

          How

          Throughout our history, society volunteers have preserved historical records and provided information access through microfilming, digitizing, and indexing projects. Many of these efforts have resulted in society publications: charts, books, and CDs, which are available to the general public. In recent years, scanning and digitizing projects have led to millions of names and actual records added to our dynamic website.
