Since the staff of the Missouri State Archives
cannot do extensive genealogical research by mail, the Friends
of the Missouri State Archives sponsors a list of researchers
to aid patrons who are unable to visit the Archives in person.
The following individuals have expressed a desire to research
in this area for a fee.
It should be clearly understood that this list
is provided as a service for patron convenience, and does
not constitute an endorsement of any of the researchers by
the Missouri State Archives or the Friends. No guarantee of
the quality of their work is made or implied. Arrangements
must be made directly with the researcher, and any agreement
entered into is a personal contract between two private parties
and does not include the Missouri State Archives or the Friends
of the Missouri State Archives.
If you have questions, please write or call
(573) 526-1981. It is requested that a #10 business size,
stamped, self-addressed envelope (SASE) be included with
the initial inquiry to any researchers.
