Missouri Digital Heritage Named One of Nation’s Best Websites
Jefferson City, MO - Missouri Secretary of State Robin Carnahan today announced that the Missouri Digital Heritage website has been named one of Family Tree Magazine’s best state websites for genealogy research. For the past nine years, Family Tree Magazine has also recognized the Missouri State Archives as one of the 101 best websites for family history research and as one of the top 10 state-of-the-art archival research portals.
“Missouri Digital Heritage is an invaluable tool for countless Missourians and genealogy enthusiasts around the country to learn more about their Missouri roots,” Carnahan said. “The resources we’ve made available online make it easier than ever to track down the genealogical records that help piece together the puzzle of our shared history.”
Each year, Family Tree Magazine, America’s highest circulating genealogy magazine, compiles a list that honors the nation’s top websites specializing in genealogy research for each of the 50 states. The complete list of Family Tree Magazine’s 2011 best state websites is available at: http://familytreemagazine.com/article/2011-best-state-websites.
The Missouri Digital Heritage website, a partnership between the Missouri State Archives and the Missouri State Library, makes historical documents from across the state available to the public through a single, searchable website. This collaborative effort assists local government and civic groups in digitizing their historical records for online access. Collections from the Archives, the State Library and historical institutions from across the state are available online at www.missouridigitalheritage.com.
