* Tips for writing successful queries:
Examples of the start of a genealogy query:
When writing your query remember - Sending too much information is as bad as sending too little. Don't send your entire gedcom file. Don't write the entire history of your family. Just pick one aspect and deal with one thing at a time.
Separate information into paragraphs. Don't send on big blob of information and expect people to sift through it. The neater it is the more likely someone will read it (perhaps a long lost cousin).
Please remember to periodically update your query, adding any new information!
When sending your query please do not use fancy fonts, colored fonts, all caps, etc.Return to St. Louis County MNGenWeb homepage
