Do you have southwest Missouri roots? Have you checked out the Springfield, Missouri, main branch of their library system? The library has a huge room full of genealogy materials for not only Missouri but other states. There are shelves of family histories and Missouri county histories and resources.
I visited the library a week ago and while I had limited time, was able to locate a lot of good information. The Genealogy and Local History section is a large open room with plenty of tables with lamps and electrical outlets for researchers. Research librarians were available to answer questions and the Ozarks Genealogical Society had a section of information.
Check them out the next time you are in Greene County, Missouri and need to do some Missouri research.
