21st Century Fund "Grant Program"

Competitive grants of up to $1,000 are offered to Missouri historical and genealogical societies, libraries and archives for projects to compile, index, preserve and or publish local records. Since 2009 MoSGA has funded several projects throughout the state.

The Vernon County Historical Society, Nevada, MO, was excited to receive a grant of over $800 to purchase archival boxes to store the Vernon County Circuit Court records, 1855-1900.  Here are photos of volunteers assembling the boxes, and an impressive photo showing the assembled and filled boxes...ready to be shelved.
