Find your ancestor in the records

The best sources of genealogical information in Montenegro are the church records kept by the local parishes and vital records kept by the local civil registration offices. The Family History Library holds very few Montenegrin vital records. The Library has also some history and genealogy books. Use the Family History Library Catalog to determine what records are available for the locality.

Research by mail

If the records you want are not available through the Family History Library they may be available through the individual Montenegrin archives. Please refer to the Letter Writing Guide for detailed information.
