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 genealogical and historical societies.

One newsletter we receive is Collage of Cape County (Cape Girardeau County Genealogical Society). This quarterly newsletter originates from the society’s headquarters in Jackson, Missouri. Newsletters are sixteen pages long (fifteen pages of content and one page for mailing info). Contents generally consist of family stories, transcriptions of county records, plus a list of recent society acquisitions and an index for the issue at hand.

Issues of this newsletter for 2011-present are available in the Genealogy Room. Our collection also includes several Cape Girardeau County histories and record compilations, which you can locate by searching our Catalog for these terms (case does not matter):
