This page is a log of major changes to the Dallas County, Missouri,
MOGenWeb site, with the exception of the frequent additions to the
Dallas Co. MO Message Boards
pages, and minor corrections. Check here often to see what has been
added or improved. Comments and suggestions are welcome.
Fixed some broken links and added new ones for Dallas Co.
Topological Maps, Missouri Supreme Court Database,
and Post Offices in Dallas County to the
Dallas County Web Links page.
Added arguments to the Topozone URLs to display map coordiates
in decimal degrees rather than UTM format, and large rather than small
scale, on the
Cemetery Maps page.
(These coordinates should help people locate them with GPS
devices, and the larger size should be more helpful, showing
more context, when printed.)
Added material about the companies of the Osage Regt.,
Missouri Home Guards formed in Dallas County, and some
additional men in the Dallas County Home Guards from the 1890
census, contributed by Rick Gregg to the
Civil War Home Guards Roster.
Federal Land Patents pages to the
Research Sources section.
This include indices for Township/Range locations, surnames and
decades, a map of Dallas Co. with the Township, Range and Section
grid lines and a section grid.
Corrected the locations for Antioch Cemetery and Maddux
Cemetery on the Cemetery Maps
page. (Thanks to Linda Crawford.)

searchable and does not require a PDF viewer.

New photos in the
Historical Photos section, many contributed by Karen Shapiro.
Photo pages now launch in separate window instead of being
trapped inside a frame, making them easier to view and print.

Major facelift replacing all pages on this site with a new
look and feel. The text on the old colored pages were too hard
to read and not very color printer friendly. The new design
places the navigation toolbar on the top and bottom of each
page, with a color bar to indicate which section you are in.
Also renamed some pages to make the URLs more consistent, and
fixed miscellaneous broken links and other nits.

put links to Dallas Co. Records from the Office of the Secretary
of State in their own section on the
Web Links page. Also added some tips
for viewing PDF documents as HTML using www.google.com.
Added a link to the Dallas Co. GenForum on the
Queries and Boards page. (I'm sick of the pop-ups ads on
the RootsWeb/Ancestry.com Message Boards, one of the worse
errors one can commit in web site design, showing total
disrespect for the users, and an excellent way to lose your
