This set of Wiki pages describes major sources of information about families from Montana. As you read these Montana Wiki pages, study the United States set of Wiki pages, which will help you understand terminology and the contents and uses of genealogical records.

Records of the Family History Library

The Family History Library has many of the records described in these Montana Wiki pages, including federal census reports, local histories, cemetery records, and records about American Indians. The library also has a few county courthouse records.

Some of the sources described in this set of Wiki pages list the Family History Library's book, microfilm, and microfiche. These are preceded by FHL, the abbreviation for Family History Library. You can use these numbers to locate materials in the library and to order microfilm and microfiche at Family History Centers.

Family History Library Catalog

The library's records are listed in the Family History Library Catalog found at the library and at each Family History Center. The catalog is available in a online or microfiche version. To find a record, look in the Place Search of the catalog for:

  • The place where your ancestor lived, such as:
UNITED STATES - CENSUS
MONTANA - CHURCH HISTORY
MONTANA, CASCADE - MILITARY RECORDS
MONTANA, CASCADE, GREAT FALLS - DIRECTORIES

  • The record type you want to search, such as:
UNITED STATES - CENSUS
MONTANA - CHURCH HISTORY
MONTANA, CASCADE - MILITARY RECORDS
MONTANA, CASCADE, GREAT FALLS - DIRECTORIES

The page titles in the Montana Wiki pages match the names of record types used in the catalog.
