Is Your Family Tree Deeply Rooted in Polk County Missouri?

The website of the Bolivar Herald-Free Press recently posted an article on the "First Families of Polk County" project; sponsored by the Polk County Genealogical Society.

After documentation of your ancestors is received and approved, the Genealogical Society will award appropriate certificates in the following categories:

• Founding Families, 1835-1860

• Pioneer Families, 1861-1879

• Settler Families, 1880-1899

• Century Families, 1900-1935

Similar projects are offered across the country on the state and county level and are excellent exercises for both novice and experienced genealogists. Documenting our ancestry generation by generation to a founding father or immigrant ancestor, and submitting this proof, preserves the documents and may help future genealogists.

The Library Center and The Library Station have materials and staff to help in your family search.
