Most archives, historical societies, and genealogical societies have special collections and indexes of genealogical value. For example, the Montana Historical Society has an excellent collection of local and family histories. These collections must usually be searched in person. There are several indexes to a variety of databases online at the MHS website (http://montanahistoricalsociety.org), and researchers will photocopy and mail records for a small fee.

A small collection of some genealogical value for Montana families is the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) Collection. This collection has transcripts of some cemetery records, church records, and wills. It was microfilmed in 1971 at the DAR Library in Washington, DC, and is available at the Family History Library (Family History Library films 870042-43 and 870178).

Writing and Sharing Your Family History

Sharing your own family history is valuable for several reasons.
It helps you see gaps in your own research and raises opportunities to find new information.
It helps other researchers progress in researching ancestors you share in common.
It draws other researchers to you who already have information about your family that you do not yet possess.
It draws together researchers with common interests, sparking collaboration opportunities. For instance, researchers in various localities might choose to do lookups for each other in remote repositories. Your readers may also share photos of your ancestors that you have never seen before.
