The Missouri State Archives has made documents from four Civil War-era governors available for viewing online. The documents come from governors Claiborne Fox Jackson, Hamilton Rowan Gamble, Willard Preble Hall and Thomas Clement Fletcher. The four headed Missouri's government at different points from 1861 through 1865. The Secretary of State's office says the documents contain information about Missouri's decision to stay in the Union and its emancipation of some slaves.

Google is the search engine of choice for most genealogists I know, due to its ability to return relevant search results for genealogy and surname queries and its huge index. Google is much more than just a tool for finding Web sites, however, and most people surfing for information on their ancestors barely scratch the surface of its full potential. If you know what you are doing, you can use Google to search within Web sites, locate photos of your ancestors, bring back dead sites, and track down missing relatives.
