The Missouri Archives has much information available by mail. It is .50 a page for microfilm and a dime for photocopies. They have a book listing what they have for what counties.
If you make a request, enclose a SASE, and a check marked vouchers. If they have the record you want they will send it to you and give you change in vouchers.
Military Records are free, as long as they are for your ancestor. This was a list of what they have on microfilm for the counties. They also have the indexes to the Federal Census for Missouri, and census records, which I find helpful, if I just have a family or two in a county, I don't have to order the film. They have more records than just what is on this list, They are very helpful. Just ask if you don't see something. My only advice is, wait a week after the first request before sending the second , because they won't do two at a time. Round trip varies between one week and three weeks.
