Welcome to the Christian County, Missouri, genealogy site.  Please read the instructions below for navigating this site.



Everything available on this site is accessible through the links in the main menu above with the exception of the Historical Schools menu in the lower section of this page. All the other links at the bottom are off-site.  The Quick Links in the right column will get you to areas believed to be the most accessed without having to view another page first.  The Obituary and Cemetery pages will also be accessed frequently, but you can get to them directly by clicking on the links in the main menu. 


Use the search box in the upper right corner of this Web page. In viewing the search results, there is likely more information that you can see in the search results page for CEMETERY listings, so it is recommended that once you know the name of the cemetery, you go to the cemetery listing through the alphabetized list accessed from the menu in the right. Then browse through to find the entry for the person of interest once you know the cemetery from using the search function. There are additional lines that do not show up in the search results.   Each cemetery page also has its own search functionality on each cemetery's page. Be sure to check if there is an obituary noted in the cemetery listing.
