Today’s episode of Research Like a Pro is about exploring the major state repositories for Missouri research. We discuss some of the major record collections at the Missouri State Archives, the Missouri Historical Society, and State Historical Society of Missouri. We look at the Missouri Digital Heritage website and offerings there as well. If you have any ancestors who could have lived in Missouri or passed through on their way west or south, you’ll want to know about these repositories.
