The MonDak Heritage Center  in Sidney
has a special room set aside for historical records; newspaper archives,  books on Montana History, private collections, and a special homesteader card file listing families together. Volunteers maintain this room, and match obituaries with the cards. Several Richland County cemeteries are indexed here.
Special exhibits are featured at various times of the year.  The Spring quilt show is well attended. The basement has early day pieces and political history. One of Montana's Governors, Donald Nutter came from Sidney.

When contacted for specific information, they will do limited look-ups.  They also sell both family history books, Courage Enough I and II Send a SASE requesting basic information to:

Verify your locations, look for homestead info, check for obituaries, then get marriage, death certificates, rent or buy census records - you must have county names. Check out the big query boards, RootsWeb,,   Ancestry, and the LDS sponsored site, Family Search. Follow the USGenWeb links to any state, then county for resources!
