Wise Words

  • In all of us there is a hunger, marrow deep, to know our heritage - to know who we are and where we came from. Without this enriching knowledge, there is a hollow yearning. No matter what our attainments in life, there is still a vacuum, an emptiness, and the most disquieting loneliness.
    Alex Haley, Roots

  • He who has no fools, knaves, or beggars in his family was begot by a flash of lightning.
    English Proverb

  • Why waste your money looking up your family tree? Just go into politics and your opponents will do it for you.
    Mark Twain

  • There are only two lasting bequests we can give our children - one is roots, and the other, wings.
    Hodding S. Carter

  • We are the children of many sires, and every drop of blood in us in its turn ... betrays its ancestor.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson

  • We've uncovered some embarrassing ancestors in the not-too-distant past. Some horse thieves, and some people killed on Saturday nights. One of my relatives, unfortunately, was even in the newspaper business.
    Jimmy Carter
    Former U.S. President

  • Life is lived forwards, but understood backwards.
    Unknown

The Northwest Missouri Genealogical Society serves the counties of Andrew, Atchison, Buchanan, Clinton, DeKalb, Gentry, Holt, Nodaway, and Worth.

Welcome!

Welcome to the home page for the Northwest Missouri Genealogical Society!

Our new and improved site is here to provide you with the most up-to-date information about the Society. Please stop by often!

Check out the Index of Library Resources to see a partial listing of what is available at the library. We are adding to this list every couple of weeks, so it is ever-changing. We have completed all of Buchanan County and are now working on the remaining counties in Missouri, alphabetically. We will then enter the Kansas counties, then all other states, then general history and international resources.

We welcome suggestions and contributions from members and non-members alike. What would make our site better for you? Please submit any ideas to admin@nwmogenealogy.com.

Here is the latest edition of our newsletter. Feel free to take a look at all the news and events happening with the NWMGS.
