Located in the northwest corner of Montana, Lincoln county was formerly part of Flathead County. Residents of Libby and Eureka petitioned the state legislature for separation and the county was created in 1909, being named for Abraham Lincoln. Libby was chosen as the county seat over Eureka in an election. It is located on Hwy 2, between Hwy 56 and Hwy 37 & is nestled in a valley carved by the Kootenai River.

We're looking to add the transcribed data from the vital records, biographies from the county histories as well as the county history information itself, transcriptions of obituaries, burial data from cemetery trompings and/or readings, the data from military pensions and other service records; enumerations from census years, any newspaper gleanings for the family members including birth announcements, marriage announcements, death notices/obits and anything in between - in short, the data you used to build your family tree (rather than the tree itself since we don't have the space or manpower to accept gedcoms and trees)
