MTGenWeb County Map

You will want to begin your search by exploring the County Websites.  You may discover that one of the counties is in need of a coordinator.   If you are interested in adopting one of the counties, please contact the State Coordinator.

Each of the hosted counties maintains a system for submitting queries.  If you don't know which county your ancestor lived in you might want to post a query to the Unknown Montana Query Board
