Re: St. Joseph Missouri City Directories. #records

Good Morning Everyone,
 
I sent this response to Felisa, but since there might be other researchers interested in St. Jospeph the response to jer is below.
 
Asa general note...rabbis tend to be a good source of information about local Jewish communities.  They may not have all the info, but they know where to look and who has knowledge....
 
Hi Felisa,
 
I was the rabbi at Temple Adath Joseph in St. Joe from 1995 to 1999.  At one time there was a good sized Jewish population with several active synagogues.  Currently only Temple Adath Joseph remains.  The congregation has a Facebook page.  
 
The St. Jospeh public library has a genealogy page on its website that includes city directories.
 
There is also a northwest Missouri genealogical society that has a website.
 
The challenge is the fact of whether or not your ancestors were present when the records were collected.
 
Good luck with your research.
 
Rabbi Matt Friedman
