Can anyone please tell me if there is a genealogy society in Clinton CO., MO. where I can get information on PLATTSBURG?
I appreciate any response and thank you for your time. I am looking for Whited/Whitehead family lines.

Hi. There is a NorthWest Genealogical Society located at:
http://www.rootsweb.com/~monwmgs/index.htm

There used to be a Plattsburg homepage and a Clinton Co. Historial page, but they seem to be down or missing now.

Hope that helps!
David

Yes, there is a Clinton County Genealogical Society, located in downtown Plattsburg. Plattsburg is the county seat and is a small town and the Genealogical Society is a very small office. In Aug. 2000, I traveled from my home in CA to research my Walker ancestors at the Clinton County Courthouse, Probate Office, and was able to obtain a lot of documents dating back 150 years there on my Walkers. You may want to write or telephone the secretary in the Probate Office for assistance in obtaining your ancestral info at the courthouse and she can also provide you with the address/phone # of the Genealogical Society. The secretary suggested I also visit the Genealogical Society there which I did. I'm sorry but I don't remember the street address. I'm sure, since the town, is so small that if you address your correspondence to the Clinton County Courthouse, Probate Office and the Clinton County Genealogical Society, Plattsburg, MO (sorry I don't know the zip code) they should get there. The genealogist working there was helpful in that she had info on my ancestors and gave me driving directions to old pioneer cemeteries in the area which I visited. Both the courthouse and the genealogical society will not give you original documents but do charge nominal fees for making copies.

I hope this helps.

Hi, Joanne! Glad I could help! If you have any questions, please e-mail me. Who knows? Most likely our ancestors knew each other as the population was very small back then. Good luck with your research!
