The library staff will look up information based on the following criteria:

  • Indexed microfilm sources in the H&G collection. Consult "Indexes, Finding Aids and Guides" for available indexes.
  • Print sources (books and periodicals) that have indexes.
  • Any sources when an exact citation is provided.

The library does not do research. A list of researchers for hire is posted on the St. Louis Genealogical Society website.

The results will be returned as an electronic file by email.

Up to three lookup requests may be submitted at one time. Further requests will be not be processed until the current ones are completed. Please review the library's lookup policy.
