Show Me More Reasons To Attend MoSGA's Annual Conference in 2017

Missouri State Capitol


Just 30 miles south of the Stoney Creek Inn in Columbia Missouri, site of the Missouri State Genealogical Association's Annual Conference is Jefferson City, the State Capitol of Missouri.

The Capitol grounds sit on a bluff above the Missouri River, providing a panoramic view of the surrounding area. The gardens around the Governor's Mansion are beautiful as well. The Missouri State Museum is here as is the Jefferson Landing State Historic Site.

Missouri State Archives


Down the hill from the Capitol is the Missouri State Archives for your researching pleasure! Many of you are familiar with and have used the amazing online resources provided by the Archives via the Missouri Secretary of State's office called the Missouri Digital Heritage. This collection is a treasure trove for Missouri researchers.

If you've not been able to find the records you need from the online collections, you will want to visit the Archives in person. You may find that missing documentation that will help you finish your Missouri First Families application, which is sponsored by the Missouri State Genealogical Association.

I hope I've provided you with additional encouragement to attend MoSGA's Annual Conference and make a research trip of this event. I hope to see you there!
