Adair County Missouri Genealogy - Top

Note from your Knox County MOGenWeb Coordinator

SPECIAL NOTICE: The state of Missouri is in the process of putting all birth an death records on line
from 1910 (when they began) to 1954. This will be a really great asset for genealogists.
There are links to images through 1920 (will eventually all be there)
and they will send you photocopies of the others for only $1.00 each!

If you are interested in helping, check out the site below and read item number 4.
The state is scanning the death records, but they need help with typing up the index to those records
so they can set up an online searchable index. Copies of pages of the index will be sent to volunteers to type up.

I am in the process of making this site an email friendly site.
All emails are or will be in red and look like this: cminor at webmoondance dot com
at will replace @ and dot will replace .
Why?  This will protect our emails from being harvested and hopefully eliminate some of
the spam email we get.  I get at least 100 a day. If you email me, please put Adair County or
something in the subject
so I know it is not spam.  If you don't I will probably delete it.
