To Request Genealogy Assistance
Anyone with a curiosity about researching family roots is welcome to take advantage of the substantial resources at the Butte Archives. You may perform your own research at no charge, and assistance is provided if needed.
We provide research services for a fee of $30 per inquiry. The fee covers Archives staff time to research our major indexes and records for up to 3 names per inquiry (plus copy fees). The average cost of an inquiry is about $35.
If we are not able to locate any listings for your family names we will respond to your inquiry but we will not send a bill. Due to the large format of many of our original materials that discourage scanning, we do not provide them electronically.
To request research assistance, send a written letter to 17 West Quartz St., Butte, MT 59701.
