The State of Missouri, has began posting to an official online website, all of their early death certificates.  You can view the site and search the available certificates at this link: Missouri Death Certificates 1910-58  Each year which passes, they will put up another year's worth of them, so that they are always fifty years in the past.

As an adjunct to my page Snodgrass Source Book for Missouri, in this article, I'm going to go through all of the posted Snodgrass death certificates in Missouri, and link each person to known families.
