Recycling old Genealogical Materials
The St. Louis Genealogical Society operates the Trading Post as a place where genealogists can recycle books, journals, computer products, and other genealogical materials that they no longer need, and where other genealogists can find great bargains on genealogical materials that they do need.
Donations can be made to the Trading Post by bringing materials to the Society Office during our regular business hours, Tuesday, Thursday, or Saturday, 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon, or by special appointment. Your donation may be tax deductible to the extent of the law, with a value determined by you.
