Under the leadereship of Peggy Thomson Greenwood, Vagabond Information Services has successfully completed ancestral searches, descendant research, and publishing family and personal stories. Research projects have been funneled to Vagabond Information Services through the St. Louis Genealogical Society, the Missouri Historical Society and the Main Branch of the St. Louis Public Library System.
Pioneer research into the plight of orphans in St. Louis Missouri in the 19th century was published by the St. Louis Genealogy Society and reprinted in the Missouri Historical Journal. The work is referenced in the American Guidebook of Genealogy and by Ancestry.com/ Additional research published includes The House of Refuge, Death Along the Oregon Trail, The Swekoski Collection, and Whispers in History.
The guiding philosophy of Vagabond Information Services is that behind every ordinary person there is an extraordinary story waiting to be told. Every person has a life legacy to record and every descendant has a right and a need for a heritage. Utilizing the same core competencies that rendered successful genealogical and family history projects, Vagabond Information Services expanded its product field to include contemporary memoirs and Life Stories.
