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

society with your presence at meetings and with your annual membership.
