Just 30 miles south of the Stoney Creek Inn, site of the Missouri State Genealogical Association's 2014 Annual Conference is Jefferson City, our State Capitol.
The Capitol grounds sit on a bluff above the Missouri River, providing a great view of the surrounding area. The gardens around the Governor's Mansion are beautiful as well. The Missouri State Museum is here as well as the Jefferson Landing State Historic Site.
Down the hill from the Capitol is the Missouri State Archives for your researching pleasure! Many of you know about and have used our AMAZING online resources provided by the Missouri Secretary of State's office called the Missouri Digital Heritage.
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 needed connection to help you finish your Missouri First Families application.
I hope this series of posts has provided you additional encouragement to attend MoSGA's Annual Conference August 1-2, 2014. I hope to see you there!
