The Volunteer Research Committee of the St. Louis Genealogical Society and the individuals on the following list are genealogical researchers who charge a fee. If you need further assistance, please contact someone who specializes in your area of interest for their rates and procedures.

The St. Louis Genealogical Society does not take any responsibility for the performance or rates of the individual genealogist you choose. These are St. Louis Genealogical Society members who have asked us to post their names and have agreed to adhere to ethical practices. Their failure to do so results in removal from this list. We appreciate feedback if you do choose one of these researchers.
