FIRST FAMILIES & EARLY SETTLERS
The Montana State Genealogical Society has issued First Families of
Montana certificates to direct descendants of the very first residents who
arrived prior to statehood, November 8, 1889, and to direct descendants of
the Early Settlers of Montana who arrived between November 9, 1889 and
December 31, 1929. Many of these later pioneers were the homesteaders who
have gone unnoticed in Montana's history. This is our way of gathering
information about them and sharing it with you through a future publication of
the Montana State Genealogical Society.
