Montana Book Fundraiser

In celebration of the Society's 40th Anniversary, it's been suggested that we establish a fund earmarked strictly for the purchase of additional Montana publications. When many county histories and publications are available, they are very expensive. Our goal this year is $4,000 for this fund. A member has donated $1,000 to be matched with specific donations to this project. To donate, mark your donation "Montana Book Fund" and drop it off at the Society Library or mail it to the Society, Attn: Larry Spicer, Acquisitions Committee Chairperson.

New in the Library!

The GFGS Library now has the funeral records from the W.H. George Company Funeral Directors and Morticians. The records span the time period from July, 1904 to October, 1978. Our volunteers have indexed the records and those indexes can now be found in our Online Resources under the Death Records category. We ask that if you find a name within those indexes, please contact the GFGS Library for more information.
