Lookups, Research and Resources

If you have a resource for Musselshell County in your home library, and are willing to help do lookups, please notify me by e-mail.


Preserving our history...

Many times information we are looking for is not yet available on the internet. Paper records are very important and are often found in a variety of locations including: libraries, historical societies, and local genealogy groups. Check with the local Chamber of Commerce for potential records and genealogy contacts in the area.

You may also want to make inquiries at area nursing homes to find a longtime resident of the area. These citizens usally love to visit and can often help you put places and names together that give you more clues in your hunt.

Don't forget to check your local museums, too -- they are a wealth of information and insight into the history of the area. And, you never know -- you may find pictures of your ancestors hanging on the wall or perhaps items or diaries that have been donated to the museum that connect to your family.
