Montana Genealogy Records

Many people today are interested in learning more about their past and their ancestors. As a result Genealogy is one of the most common terms in search engines on the World Wide Web. For those who are new to the world of Genealogy, there are many ways one can find information regarding their ancestors. Some of the most common forms of public records used for genealogy are: For Birth Records In Montana, birth records are maintained by the Office of Vital Statistics which have birth records that date back to late 1907. For Death Records In the state of Montana, death records are kept by the Office of Vital Statistics. This agency has death records that date back more than a century, to late 1907. For Obituaries Finding Montana obituaries on the web isn't as easy as you may have hoped. This state is quite a bit behind the times when it comes to digitizing their records and notices so that anyone anywhere can view them. If you are looking for Montana obituary records, consider starting your search with the Teton County webpage on the massive GenWeb website. GenWeb is a loose partnership of regional websites dedicated to getting more and more records and history online so that it can be preserved forever. At the time of this writing, this is really the only known source for obits in this state, however, many of the state newspapers are working hard at getting their previous issues put online. For instance, The Lewiston News-Argus, The Missoula Independent and the Helena Independent Record are all working on getting obits from the past online, but access may be limited until their entire records are ready to view or these newspaper sites may choose to charge for access. Probably the best thing you can do is to pick up the phone and contact either a public library in the region you are looking for or a local newspaper in that area to see if they can send you a hard copy through the mail. For Marriages The Montana Office of Vital Statistics has a statewide index of marriages that have occurred since 1943.
