Thanks to Randy Seavers’ Genea-Musings Blog, I found out that the current “Everton’s Genealogical Helper” Online Edition is FREE for download (this month only!). You can go to Everton Publisher’s Genealogy Blog for the link.
While I was scanning the online edition, I came across a link (yes, the links within the online edition actually link to a website) for Jackson County, Missouri records. If you go to https://records.co.jackson.mo.us/localization/menu.asp and click the “Acknowledge Disclaimer” link at the bottom and proceed. You can look up Marriage Records, Official Public Records and Uniform Commercial Codes. I found the Power of Attorney of my great-great-aunt’s grandson and marriage records for more of the Given family that I am trying to locate.
Since that gave me a little taste of gleaming information from public records, I thought I’d do some Googling to see what else was out there. Unfortunately, my time is short right now so I didn’t find a lot of sites, but I did find a site called Your Missouri Courts which looks as if it encompasses all counties in Missouri and the courts therein. I located some wills and divorce information.
Hope those sites help someone!
