The Missouri State Genealogical Association takes pride in offering the Missouri First Families program to honor early Missouri families. Categories include: Territorial, Pioneer, and Civil War. 
While MoSGA is providing these lists of members who wish to do research or conduct workshops, MoSGA does not endorse these researchers/speakers and assumes no responsibility for their work.
Anyone hiring a researcher or speaker should check their qualifications and references and should have a clear idea of fees charged before any work begins.  A list of possible questions and things you should consider is available by clicking here.
