We're looking for DATA for this site!!!
If you are interested in adding your families' information this website, email us. We'll be happy to help your families'
obituaries, news items and other historical data find a home here at Montana Genealogy Trails, where it will remain
free for all to view.
WE REGRET THAT WE ARE UNABLE TO DO PERSONAL RESEARCH FOR
YOU. ALL DATA IS ADDED TO THE SITE AS WE COME ACROSS IT, SO IF IT IS NOT HERE, WE DON'T HAVE ACCESS TO IT.
Missoula County, Washington Territory was incorporated in 1860. Missoula County
encompassed present-day Missoula and Deer Lodge Counties, as well as a good portion of land north and south of
present-day Missoula County. Hell Gate Town, the county seat, was located at the confluence of the Clark Fork and
In 1863, Missoula County reverted to the Idaho Territory when it was created in that year. Missoula County then
shifted its boundaries to look more like its present-day boundaries dividing the Bitterroot Mountains from the
Rocky Mountains. Missoula County became a part of Montana Territory when the territory was organized out of the
existing Idaho Territory by Act of Congress and signed into law by President Abraham Lincoln on May 26, 1864. This
early Missoula County was one of the eleven original counties of Montana Territory and consisted of part or all
of the lands now occupied by the current Ravalli, Missoula, Granite, Mineral, Lake, Sanders, Lincoln, Flathead,
and Glacier Counties. (wikipedia.org)

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)
