The Electric Foster has been on-line in one form or another since 1989. It started with the problem of finding out who James Foster, Sr.’s parents were. An answer for which we are still searching. As the search deepened it became apparent that there were several different lines of Fosters in the area (Benton, Henry, St. Clair & Morgan Counties in Missouri) and there were several researchers grasping for the same answers.

So the Electric Foster became a site to pool all of those resources and work through them. If you have Fosters in this area prior to 1850, jump in! We can use the help.

The administrator of this site is Terry Foster. Terry makes no claim of genealogical prowess. He merely studies others research and then researches more himself and attempts to answer the narrow question of, “Who were these Fosters?”
