Just Shelved: Opening the Ozarks

We have just received Opening the Ozarks by Marsha Hoffman Rising. This genealogical resource lists biographical information for the first families in Southwest Missouri from 1835 to 1839, of which there is enough to fill four alphabetically-arranged volumes.

Ms. Rising’s research appears to be thorough, and she supports her findings with their original sources, which she lists in an impressive bibliography. If you have traced a male ancestor to or from southwest Missouri, we recommend looking him up in this resource (SC 977.87 RIS).
