MTGenWeb Lake County, Montana, Home Page

Welcome to


Lake County is now up for adoption.  If you would like more information about being a County Coordinator,
stop by the MTGenWeb state site for more information and contact the State Coordinator.
MTGenWeb site

This website has not been updated since the CC left.  Only the basic information
will be updated until a new coordinator takes over. 

As of November 2009, the previous CC has asked that the site be taken down.  Until we can get the site reconstructed on the MTGenWeb server,
we will need to use the current pages but please don't email her with your questions.  Thanks so much, Karen DJ
