AVAILABILITY:  One carbon copy of this book form index is known to exist in the State Historical Society of Missouri. The staff of the society will not perform name searches in this index.
SCOPE OF INDEX:  A selective index to items of genealogical interest (births, marriages, deaths, etc.) and items of local history.
FORMAT OF INDEX:  A book form index typewritten on 8½x11 inch pages. Each volume is arranged only by first letter of the last name. That is, all names beginning with the letter A are filed together, but not in alphabetical order within the A's. Further, the last name is not emphasized in any way, making a search difficult. To perform a search, the user would have to look at every entry within the letter A in all 19 volumes. It appears that material from newspapers outside the area specified has also been included. Since there is no listing of which newspapers have been included for each period (or volume), it is difficult to correlate the index with a specific newspaper or time period. Entries seem to contain a goodly amount of genealogical information, including birth and death dates, name of relatives, etc. The citation includes the date of the paper, the name of the paper, and the city of the paper.
SIZE OF INDEX:  19 volumes as bound by library.
