The Missouri State Genealogical Association [MoSGA] recently awarded a grant of $996.95 to the Morgan County Historical Society in Versailles, Missouri. The Historical Society will use the funds to purchase archival supplies to preserve, organize and display their county’s school records dating from 1846 to 1961. The records were recently donated to the society by the Morgan County RII School District.
MoSGA’s 21st Century Fund was established in 2005 during the Association’s 25th Anniversary. The fund provides grants of up to $1,000 to Missouri societies, libraries and/or archives to promote preservation and publication of Missouri genealogical data.
January 1, 2011 begins a new grant cycle. Grant applications and guidelines are available on MoSGA’s Web site www.mosga.org Application deadline is April 30, 2011 with grants awarded prior to July 1, 2011.
