Tours - Historic Tour DowntownAs pioneers migrated across the country along the waterways, trails, and eventually railroads in search of new homes, the Midwest became the crossroads of the nation. Some settlers arrived from their first American homes in the East while others traveled directly from abroad. Some migrated via east coast ports while others sailed to New Orleans then made their way up the Mississippi River to reach points north and west. All traveled with their families, their hopes and dreams, customs, occupations, and religious beliefs. Regardless of their final destinations, those early travelers left many footprints along the way as they crossed America.

The National Genealogical Society 2015 Family History Conference will be held 13–16 May 2015 in the St. Charles Convention Center, One Convention Center Plaza, St. Charles, Missouri. The convention center and all hotels offer free parking.
