Cedar & Vernon County, MO Genealogical Society Monthly Meeting

Tuesday, August 16, 2016, 10 a.m.

El Dorado Springs Library Meeting Room

808 S. Main Street, El Dorado Springs, MO


Genealogical Jewels from Periodicals

Local and state genealogical societies, local and state historical societies, family associations, and other similar organizations publish monthly or quarterly periodicals.  These range from informal newsletters similar to this Society's newsletter to more formal books and scholarly publications, such as the Missouri State Genealogical Association’s Journal and the Missouri Historical Society’s Review.  Periodicals contain “genealogical jewels” which can help your research – come learn how to search in this often overlooked resource and obtain copies of articles!  

Each month the genealogy society presents information that will help with your research.  Support your local society with your presence at meetings and with your annual membership.  The Nevada Library Genealogy Department is open to researchers during all regular Library hours.  Wi-fi is available if you bring your personal device.  Two computers in the Genealogy Dept. are available exclusively for genealogy research.  A $25 12-month library card can be obtained at the circulation desk if you live outside of Nevada, or a free limited guest pass can also be obtained.

The Walker Herald

Walker, Missouri

Extant Issues Transcribed

1892-1923, 1924-1926, and 1927-1931


In 1882 S. J. Preston began publishing the Walker Herald, a weekly journal sold by subscription, and continued its publication until two weeks before his death in 1931. Neoma Foreman was given permission by Preston's family to transcribe the extant issues of the newspaper and publish those transcriptions in three volumes. Each of the three volumes is fully indexed.  A “21st Century Award” from the Missouri State Genealogical Association helped fund in part the publication of the books.  The 3-vol. set can be purchased for $50.00 (includes Media Mail shipping/handling) by mailing check or company purchase order to the Cedar & Vernon Co MO Genealogical Society at the above address.  Comb bound cardstock covers, 8 1/2 x 11 format.  Sample page at this link.

   1924-1926 - 178 pages includes index

   1927-1931 - 216 pages includes index
