Kansas City Regional Histories Index
This Project is a contribution to the KC150 Celebration.
WHMC-KC has brought together the indexes of some of the key Kansas City regional history books into a single Histories Index so they may be searched at one time. This should simplify the time consuming task of seeking historical information and reduce the need to pull from the shelves many different volumes in order to check indexes and tables of contents.
In addition to providing the page and volume for an entry in the indexed works, we have selected reviews of the books and links to library and booksellers where they might be located. Some hints on using the Index may be found below.
Currently the Index is projected to include about 50 works. Some of the most important, but also most difficult indexes to transform into a database, have yet to be done.
We hope you find this Index useful in your research into the Kansas City regional rich history. Your comments and suggestions for this project would be most welcome. Please send them to the Kansas City Public Library's Missouri Valley Special Collections department: Phone 816-701-3427, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
