If your ancestor showed up in Missouri prior to the Civil War, you may be wondering where he (or she) came from. Missouri was, after all, the Gateway to the West, and explorers and pioneers came through it. I'll show you the clues to their origins, why they came to Missouri, and how they got there.
Beth Foulk has turned a lifetime genealogy passion into an opportunity to share what she’s learned with genealogists across the country.
She has documented her Civil War, War of 1812, and Revolutionary War ancestors. She has mapped the migration of her Kansas and Missouri pioneers. And researched the arrival of her many Massachusetts Colonial settlers. Each ancestor and each story quickly become a “teaching moment” for her classes.
“The only thing more fun than a genealogy find, is sharing what I’ve learned to help other genealogists.”
Foulk has been “spreading the genealogy gospel” since 2008 when she first taught as a volunteer at the Midwest Genealogy Center in Independence, Missouri.
