MoSGA First Families Program
Do you have ancestors who lived in Missouri in the 1800s? If so, you may be eligible to apply for a Missouri First Families Certificate to honor your ancestor. MoSGA would like to encourage you to participate in this program before the Missouri Bicentennial Celebration for Missouri’s statehood. If your application is accepted prior to June 30, 2021 your ancestor will be honored in the MoSGA Bicentennial display.
