The St. Louis Genealogical Society released three important new products on CD for Missouri research at its fortieth annual Family History Conference on Saturday, May 16.
St. Louis Burials, Volume 3, is the third in the Society’s ongoing project to record every burial in every cemetery in St. Louis City and County. This newly released CD product includes over 330,000 interments in 21 cemeteries, including Bellefontaine (a large, historic non-denominational cemetery with burials of many famous Americans, including William Clark, Sarah Teasdale, William Tecumsah Sherman, Eberhard Anheuser, and Adolphus Busch) and Washington Park (the largest African-American cemetery in the state). Information on this CD (when available) includes names, dates and locations of birth, death, and burial, maiden names of women, ages, marital status, mortuaries, gravesite locations, and more.
Previous CD products in this series include St. Louis Catholic Burials, recording nearly 500,000 burials in 26 Catholic cemeteries, and St. Louis Burials, Volume 2, which includes over 500,000 burials in 230 cemeteries, including Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery as well as many private family burial plots.
The second CD product released at the Society’s conference is a two-CD set of the first forty years of the Society’s scholarly Quarterly journal, including a surname index to the first 34 volumes and an every-name index to the last six volumes. The Quarterly volumes are presented as every-word-searchable PDF files. Also included on these CDs are indexes to all 1,330 articles by title, author, subject, and volume-page number.
The third product released at the conference is a booklet entitled Web Resources, with a companion CD. This 46-page booklet contains reprints of the Society’s “Web Resources” columns from the past five years of its monthly newsletter, News ‘n Notes. This popular genealogy-technology column has been completely updated for 2010 and the CD includes a PDF version of the booklet with live links to all websites.
St. Louis Burials, Volume 3, is available for purchase from the Society at the price of $35.00 for Society members and $40.00 for non-members.
The Quarterly Journal CD is available for purchase either separately or as a two-CD set. Part 1 (volumes 1-20, 1968-1987) or Part 2 (volumes 21-40, 1988-2007) each costs $25.00 for Society members and $30.00 for non-members, when purchased singly. The two-volume set of all 40 years of the Quarterly costs $45.00 for members and $55.00 for non-members.
The Web Resources booklet and CD is available for the price of $22.00 for Society members and $25.00 for non-members.
