File Folders

The Society maintains a collection of surname files at its office. These materials have been donated over many years by members and friends of the Society. They are housed in vertical files (manila file folders) and may be searched in person at the Society’s office. Due to the extreme differences in the contents of the files, please call before coming into the office at 314-647-8547.

The contents in any particular file may vary widely, but may contain items such as:

  • Pedigree charts
  • Family group sheets
  • Newspaper articles
  • Photocopies from books or journals
  • Correspondence

The Society has collected these materials and makes them available for review, but has not verified their contents.


The online Index lists each surname which may refer to multiple folders of the same or different families.


Neither the files nor their contents may be removed from the office. Photocopies of papers in these files may be made for the price of twenty-five cents per page.
