Midwest Genealogy Center Building
The Midwest Genealogy Center opened in June 2008. The largest free-standing public genealogy library in the United States boasts 52,000 square feet of resources for family history researchers.
On June 17, 1933, shots rang out at Union Station in Kansas City and forever changed federal law enforcement in the United States. Five men were killed in a flurry of machine gun and shotgun fire, and only after the assassination of mob boss Johnny Lazia did the FBI to come up with a solution to the massacre.
Learn about the stories and histories of the families who lived in this area in 1860. Tom Rafiner will try to answer the question of what happened to the families during the War leading up and subsequent to Order No. 11, where they went, and who came back.
Join us for our annual "Let Your Skeletons Dance!" Lock-In on October 24th from 6:00 p.m. until midnight. Attendees will be "locked-in" to enjoy a delicious buffet and have until midnight to do genealogical research in a fun environment.
