The following announcement was written by the St. Louis Genealogical Society:
St. Louis Genealogical Society Completes Indexing 1.6 Million Burials
Do you know what these people have in common? Engineer, James Eads; Blues hockey player, Barclay Plager; Negro Leagues baseball player, James "Cool Papa" Bell; sports broadcaster, Jack Buck; slave, Dred Scott; poet, Sara Teasdale; educator, Susan Blow; and humanitarian, Tom Dooley?
They are just a handful of the 1.6 million people buried in St. Louis City or St. Louis County, Missouri, who have been indexed by the St. Louis Genealogical Society. This unique project was completed entirely by dedicated volunteers who donated thousands of hours to finalize this massive task. With the publication of its fourth and final cemetery CD, the society has now indexed every known cemetery with only one exception in St. Louis City and County.
St. Louis Genealogical Society is now proud to announce the Index to St. Louis Burials, volume 4, containing more than 270,000 names of people buried in nineteen cemeteries in St. Louis City and County. Volumes 3 and 4 of the Index to St. Louis Burials are available for sale from the St. Louis Genealogical Society, #4 Sunnen Drive, St. Louis, Missouri, 63143 or in the online store at www.stlgs.org. The burial data from volumes 1 and 2 are available free of charge to members on the StLGS website.
StLGS is dedicated to preserving and sharing records of historical and genealogical interest. StLGS is now engaged in its next major project--—the indexing of St. Louis City and County congregation records. If you are interested in information about the society, its ongoing projects, or volunteer opportunities, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. StLGS is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) organization with members in forty-eight states and several foreign countries.
