Last updated 13 May 2005

If you know of additional books or microfilm that should be added to our bibliography, please let me know so we can make this a valuable resource tool for all Lincoln County genealogy researchers.

If you have access to any of these films or books, and are willing to do lookups, let me know so we can add your name to the Lookup Page.  If you can't do lookups, that's okay --  we can still add the resource info to the bibliography page. -- Carl Hampe or Patricia SummersSmith

You may gain access to many of the sources on this page through (1) interlibrary loan; (2) a National Archives regional branch; (3) a local Family History Center; (4) microfilm rental through Heritage Quest or other rental facility.  Be sure to ask your library about availability through interlibrary loan.

 

NOTES

"NARA" refers to National Archives and Records Administration.  Books or records with a NARA microfilm number can be viewed at a National Archives and Records Administration Regional Branch ("NARA") or rented through their rental program. (Link at bottom of page.) They may also be available at larger city libraries or at some genealogical societies. There are other rental agencies through which one may receive microfilms by mail.

Family History Centers.   Books or records with FHL numbers are available through  Family History Centers near you.  To find a Family History Center in your area, call (U.S.) 1-800-346-6044, or check The Family History Centers page.

Family History Library in Salt Lake City. Unless a book has been microfilmed, books do not circulate to Family History Centers and must be viewed at the library in Salt Lake City or located through some other facility.  Sources from the Family History Library Catalog have been added to this bibliography and appear below.  However, you may wish to browse the On-Line Family History Library Catalog available through FamilySearch to see if there are additional listings not posted here.

Missouri State Archives is located in Jefferson City, MO.

Purchase.  As purchase information becomes known and is available to me, it will be included on this page.
