Deaths Recorded in the

Montana Workman Newsletter

Montana State Genealogical Society Homepage

Newsletter devoted to the Interest of the Ancient Order of United Workmen in Montana,

March 1892 – February 1899

Recently the Montana State Genealogical Society Library in Helena received the collection of 32 Ancient Order of United Workmen (AOUW) newsletters from 1 Mar 1892 – 1 Feb 1899 from the Montana State Historical Society.  It contains valuable genealogical information on the many men who belonged to this statewide organization, which was instituted on 18 December 1890.  Especially important are pre-1907 deaths as they pre-date state record keeping.   

The Papers are located in the Vertical Files of the MSGS Library, located on the 2nd Floor of the Lewis & Clark Public Library, 120 S. Last Chance Gulch in Helena.
