Any person who can prove lineal, bloodline descent from an ancestor who settled in Missouri before August 10, 1861 is eligible to join the Families of Antebellum Missouri.

He or she must provide documentation for each statement of birth, marriage and death, as well as of the residence of their antebellum ancestor. Our application allows applicants to take advantage of their membership in the Sons of the American Revolution or Daughters of the American Revolution by using Record Copies as primary source documentation. Documentation from other lineage societies will be considered by the Genealogist General. You will need to supplement Society Record Copies with a Missouri Census or other document that places your eligible ancestor in Missouri prior to August 10, 1861.

Charter Members, anyone joining during 2018, will pay a life membership fee of $150.00 and will receive a society medal and membership certificate. Subsequent members will pay an initiation fee of $100.00 and $25.00 annually; they will receive a certificate and have the opportunity to buy a society medal for $25.00.
