I'm trying to find records of my grandpa, who was from MO. He died when my mom was a baby and noone knows much about him or his side of the family. Where can I research for him in MO? I'm from CA so is there an online data base? Or a good public library? anything will help!

If he was born before 1930, you should be able to find him in the 1930 census. If you have a library card you should be able to access Ancestry.com for free there. If you'd like, you can give me his name and I could look him up for you

The two most useful Missouri online resources I regularly use are the death certificates at the archives site CAVA1990 listed, and the marriage database at Ancestry.

Of course, a lot depends on what time period you're talking about. You say it's a grandfather, but you could be anywhere from 16-70, so knowing when it is he might have died is impossible. The death certificates only go up to 1960. Marriages until very recently.
