The Missoula Public Library has data for the following counties in western Montana: Missoula, Mineral, Granite, Ravalli, Lake, Lincoln, and Sanders. The Western Montana Genealogical Society houses their collection at the Missoula Public Library. We have a committee that helps answer the queries. You are welcome to send them to me. We created our files to do this. There may be a bit of wait as we receive MANY queries through our Society's mail, Roots-L, Library mail and e-mail, the Montana State Genealogical Society, etc. Check out the Missoula Public Library's website under genealogy. We have listed SOME of the records that we have to check. We do not have census tapes in our library. They are available at the University of Montana's Mansfield Library and our local Family History Center has the Montana films as well. If the information is not here, I may know where it is.
