St. Louis County Library, Irish Genealogy Collection

St. Louis Genealogy Resource The Irish Roots Cafe

Genealogy Books in St. Louis
Over the last 30 years we have been able
to note libraries that take an extra ordinary
interest in Irish Genealogy. One tip off is
that they have our resource books on hand for
their patrons.

A Library with Irish Resources
Today a shout out goes to the St. Louis County
Library, 1640 S. Lindbergh Blvd., St. Louis, MO. 63131
They will have most of our books on hand for you, and
that would be about 50 titles in all, with research books
on every county in Ireland for starters, and the classic
histories like the Annals of Ireland by the Four Masters,
and Keatings History of Ireland, plus plenty more.

The Books
I expect they will all be on hand in June. You can always
call ahead to special collections, to see if they have arrived
and are on the shelves yet (wait till mid June). If you have
forgotten some of the Irish genealogy titles we publish, click
below for a link to most of my books

St. Louis Irish
The Irish played a major role in St. Louis History, from constables
and sheriffs, to traders, newspapermen, and wagon builders. I spent
a year or two putting it all together in my Missouri Irish book, and
I included names and origins in Ireland, whenever I found them. Yes,
my Missouri Irish book will be on hand at the St. Louis County Library
as well, (projected to be there in June of 2014.)

Beyond St. Louis
St. Louis was the major settlement in Missouri for the Irish early on,
but they are found in every county, and particularly in Kansas City,
St. Joseph and many more cities. Don’t forget the Irish Wilderness
that was settled in southeastern Missouri by Fr. Hogan. I’ve included
that in the book, and visited there too. St. Louis is a major repository
for records, so include it on your next research trip.

My Next Blogs will include:
Books on our list that will not be reprinted, so get it now.
Sean Nos song, dance and music gathering report, Sean Nos organization.
We’ll be bigger at the Dublin, Ohio Irish Fest this year. ( a special treat in store)
Live streaming video of genealogy notes from me, when and how…

Till next time,
