Montana History Indexes
Below you will find links to two indexes compiled by our resident historian, Phyllis Smith. The first is an index for Gallatin County's Heritage - A Report of Progress, 1805-1976 by Merrill G. Burlingame, who was a former head of the history department at Montana State University in Bozeman and co-founder of the Museum of the Rockies. The second is an index for In Celebration of our Past which is a collection of papers presented at the Annual History Conference.
