Is it possible to find information about people who were born or who died in Montgomery County, MO during the 19th century, or did the courthouse fire there destroy everything? What alternatives are there for people with ancestors from that county? I have been unable to find a single piece of information about any of my Missouri ancestors, and I have been looking for over two years. The rest of my tree is filled in nicely, but I have nothing from Missouri. I haven't even been able to find information from other counties (Lincoln and Joplin). Thanks for any help you can provide.
