Irish Vital Records from Newspaper Files

Society volunteers extracted information on St. Louisans of Irish descent from local newspapers. In 1978, a list of such news items with vital record content was published. The articles were from the Missouri Gazette – Missouri Republican unless noted otherwise. The data is organized by the name of the principal person mentioned, but the other names mentioned in the item are extracted in a separate column.

This list was published in the 1978 St. Louis Genealogical Society Quarterly, volume 11, number 2, pages 39–43.
