In keeping with "fair use"
doctrine, I will not Xerox anything from these books. I travel so sometimes
a response could take several weeks (not usually though). I don't live
anywhere close to MO so I cannot provide any assistance beyond what I am
offering. I never lived there so can't answer any questions relative to
MO govt. agencies, addresses, etc.. Please, no requests for "surname" searches
- these are specific "lookups" only.
