The Stoddard County
Genealogy Society was organized in 1979 by a small group of dedicated
genealogists whose intent was to establish a non-profit, educational
organization to aid people in the search for their family
The purpose of this organization
is to encourage the science of genealogy, to promote education,
to gather genealogical information, to preserve and publish materials
of historical and genealogical nature, and to promote interest
in the preservation of genealogical records in Stoddard County,
On April 2, 2012, the National Archives (NARA) released the
Census as digital images. Our society participated in the
indexing effort by FamilySearch.org. The indexing project reached the half-way mark in early June; the state of
Missouri was completed in late June. Many thanks to our volunteers on the project, and
congratulations to FamilySearch.org for producing yet another useful index for genealogists.
In June 2010, the Society working together with Acclaim Press completed
the family history book, a project that took 2 and 1/2 years.
As of Jan. 30, 2013, we still have some books available for sale at
the price of $55 each. If you want the book mailed to you, include additional
$5.60 for USPS priority mail rate.
The Society publishes a
quarterly newsletter with issues in the spring, summer, fall
and winter. The newsletter covers the area of Stoddard County,
with stories and names of early settlers. As a member your name, contact info,
and the surnames you are researching are published.
Queries, not to exceed 65 words, are free to members.
More than one query may be submitted at a time and will be printed
as space allows.
Members are welcome to submit articles for consideration to be published relating
to Stoddard County. The editor of the newsletter is Lynda Stewart.
