I received the following message from DCGS President Betty Nelson about a wonderful donation received.  Please read:

 The family of Pauline Carrier donated all her Genealogy Records to the Society. Their is a world of information on the southwest area of the county. She has a scrapbook of the 1939 Class of Lockwood High School including a photo of the Graduating class all identified then many photo's of the class reunions and of events during her school years. Then obits of the class and other obits from the area. When she read a cemetery she tried to do a family sheet of the person and added information she researched. We will inventory everything then make it available for researchers. Also we got a family bible yesterday that begins the John Holmes marriage to Harriet Gould in 1822 in N.Y. The last entry the death of Mary J. Brown Holmes at Waverly Ill. Oct 7th 1912. All births, marriages and deaths of thes family are listed. We do not know the connection with Dade Co. yet. Might have someone be able to identify this family. Betty 


Due to a broken leg on November 13, 2005, all progress was stopped on this page.  I was unable to sit at my computer and enter data.  I am now up and running and will try to finish all data.

If you need cemetery directions, the veterans list or publications please email me at and I will answer all queries privately until the information is available.

There is an exciting new link for Missouri Death Certificates:  go to to start your search.  You can view certificates from 1910 - 1923 and can order copies from 1910 - 1955.  It is a wonderful page and list all the information you could want on death certificates for Missouri.  This a major break through for researchers of Missouri ancestory.
