Hi, my name is Angela Hartman and I would like to welcome you to the Sanders County MTGenWeb Project. I'm very glad you stopped by and hope that you find this website useful for your genealogical research.

I do not live in Sanders County so I am not able to do local research, but be sure to check out the Lookups page for Volunteers that are willing to help with research. Should you have any questions or comments regarding the Sanders County MTGenWeb Project, please e-mail me.

Sanders County was created from Missoula County in 1905, and was named after Wilbur Fisk Sanders, pioneer and U.S. Senator from Montana.
