LOCAL RESEARCH COLLECTION

Information about Montgomery County can be extremely useful in locating family history. Three primary collections compiled by volunteers are a good place to begin research. 1. Old Settlers of Montgomery County (five binders), 2. Civil War Veterans of Montgomery County (eleven binders), 3. Pioneer Women of Montgomery County (over 3,000 listings). These collections include biographical sketches, obituaries, and other information about individuals and families. A vertical file of family names and histories is also maintained, as well as a miscellaneous file containing local items of interest throughout the county's history. Boxed family files of information collected and donated to the center by specific families is also available for research.
