Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy

Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing genealogical and historical data and placing it online for the free use of all researchers.

This County Site is Available for Adoption!

WANT TO HELP?

We're looking for folks who share our dedication to putting data online and are interested in helping this project be successful. If you are interested in joining our group, view our

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.


NO, Yellowstone Park is NOT in Yellowstone County.
What IS in this county is Yellowstone River, which bisects the county from southwest to northeast, and which has its headwaters in Yellowstone Park.
Apparently this county is named after the river, and not the park.

The Montana parts of Yellowstone park are in Park County and Gallatin County.
The majority (53%) of the park lies in Park County, Wyoming, with other sections in Teton County, Wyoming and Fremont County, Idaho.

Now that this is cleared up, here's info on Yellowstone County, Montana:


Founded: 1883
Seat: Billings
Largest city: Billings

This is the most populous county in Montana, and the fastest growing county as well - with a projected population growth of 32 percent by 2025.

PREVIOUS UPDATES


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)
