A painstaking work of organization discloses the thousands upon thousands of Europeans who immigrated to America in the 19th Century through St. Louis. State Archivist Ken Winn says the St. Louis Genealogical Society has weeded out the duplicates in 180,000 index cards that were scattered in various governmental buildings throughout the city. Among those listed on the cards are Joseph Pulitzer, Adolphus Busch and Eberhard Anheuser, but Winn says the other names are truly to be treasured. He says this list will help both the amateur and professional historian. The society plans to put digital images of the cards online by the end of the year.
