I have been researching my family for over 20 years and look forward to sharing historical information about my ancestors with you and meeting many new "relatives" throughout the coming years! Some of the names I am researching are Alcorn, Love, Box, Seats, McClary, Haggard, Link, Rex, Condray, Lovelady, Swezea, and the ever elusive Smith.
On May 30, 2017 I spoke with Ryan Van Winkle, the current Editor and Publisher of The Current Local in Van Buren, Carter Co., MO, which has been in publication since 1884. He gave permission to post any information on Find A Grave or elsewhere from articles located in the 1884-1994 editions that he has made available to The State of Missouri Historical Society at their Digital Heritage website (be sure you note the actual newspaper, its location, the edition date and page #).
If you're looking for information on your Carter County people (i.e. births, marriages, deaths, general happenings about town, etc.), I would strongly encourage you to check the State of MO website--it's free!!
You might even want to call Ryan to get a subscription to The Current Local for recent happenings in Carter County! I'm really enjoying mine!!
If I have set up a memorial for a relative of yours and they are not related to me, I will gladly consider transferring them to you. Please click on the "Edit" tab on their memorial, then click on "Suggest any other correction or addition" and be sure to share your F-A-G name, contributor # and relation to person you are asking to have transferred.
If I add any information to this site that you feel is incorrect, please let me know so I can review it and make corrections if needed. Please contact me with any questions and God Bless You!!
