- April 16th - Did you know that UTA had a manuscript collection? Brenda McClurkin is their archivist. In her talk, "Using Manuscript Collections in Genealogical Research," she'll not only tell us about the UTA collection but how to find and use manuscript collections in your research. Manuscript collections can provide you with sources you can't find anywhere else. My g-g-g grandfather taught foreign languages to students in St. Louis, Missouri in the 1870's. In the manuscript collection at the Missouri Historical Society I located one of the handbills he used to advertise his classes.
