Newspapers provide a picture of the day to day lives of our ancestors and the areas where they lived. Look for obituaries, lists of burial permits, births, and marriages. Articles may be found about ancestors who participated in government, social or sporting events, or received awards. Court cases and crimes were reported in the newspapers. Foreign language newspapers existed in St. Louis for several languages and many of the municipalities had their own newspapers.
