Last Chance to Purchase Local History Publication


“We’re very excited to announce that the Jefferson County Genealogical Society (JCGS) acquired the last run of Jefferson County History, Missouri History & Families, at a discounted price,”states JCGS President, Christine Merseal. The publication was originally released in 2015 after a two-year research project by its members, and family submissions by the extended Jefferson County community. JCGS was able to obtain 75 additional copies of the well-received publication from Acclaim Press. “We know that some individuals were hesitant to purchase the publication originally because of the price. We want to pass on the savings, so we reduced the price from $65 to $50,” states Christine.

Jefferson County History, Missouri History & Families is a 336-page beautifully hard bound book. The volume features more than 600 historic photographs of life in Jefferson County, including its towns, businesses, buildings, churches, families and organizations. It is fully indexed and has historical information on the county dating back to 1818. There is even a section of well-known people with ties to Jefferson County written by the now late Della Lang.

Copies are available for pickup at the Northwest Library located at 5680 State Road PP, High Ridge, Missouri. In addition, the publication can be shipped anywhere within the USA for an additional $10 postage and handling. Mail your request and check to JCGS, P.O. Box 1342, High Ridge, MO 63049. Questions?

According to JCGS president, “This will be your last chance to purchase this extraordinary publication.  The Jefferson County Genealogical Society will not have this publication reprinted after these copies are gone.”
