Four lectures over two days:

  • Orphanage Care in St. Louis (Viki Fagyal, author and StLGS treasurer): There have always been orphans in every society, although how orphans have been cared for varies. The first orphanage in St. Louis can be traced to about 1828. Learn about the history of orphans and orphanages in St. Louis.
  • The Railroads of St. Louis (Nicholas Fry, curator, John W. Barriger III National Railroad Library): St. Louis built its livelihood on the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers. With the coming of the railroad, the city’s economic engine would be split between the rivers and the rails, changing the region forever. This talk will cover the arrival and development of railroads in the region and the transformations they caused.

Learn about what is in the department and how you can access information remotely.
  • Cemetery Use for Genealogical Purposes (Becky DiFilippo, Dan Fuller, Dorris Keeven-Franke, and Michele Thomas, Bellefontaine Cemetery staff and volunteers): Beautiful, peaceful, and overflowing with genealogical information, Bellefontaine Cemetery is one of the finest examples of what was known as a rural cemetery. Our speakers, dedicated staff and volunteers, will give us a glimpse of the treasures to be found in this and similar cemeteries.

All four lectures will be live-streamed and digitally recorded. You can watch them live and be able to ask questions, and/or you can watch the recordings, which will be posted online for an additional ninety days.
