Some of this I knew but hadn't really learned how to use the library of congress website for newspapers. Will be fun to look.
I haven't used the RAOGK for sometime either...they may be listed on the usgenweb site for the state.
The Missoula historical museum is an excellent idea.
I did find the Missoula Public Library index...had a little trouble but thanks to you, I knew to keep at it!!
Although I don't know that I want to go farther out on Speaks line.
