Our genealogy collection concentrates on the State of Missouri, and states and countries that furnished large numbers of migrants to Missouri. As part of that research focus, we collect printed genealogical materials for various Missouri counties, including family histories, record compilations, county and local histories, and publications of county historical and genealogical societies.

One newsletter we receive is CCHS Museum Newsletter (Chariton County Historical Society). This quarterly newsletter originates from the society’s museum in Salisbury, Missouri. Newsletters are ten pages long (nine pages of content and one page for mailing info). Contents generally consist of transcriptions of newspaper articles, short articles about Chariton County history, plus a list of society acquisitions and pubications.

Issues of the newsletter for 2012-present are available in the Genealogy Room. Our collection also includes several Chariton County histories and record compilations, which you can locate by searching our Catalog for these terms (case does not matter):
