Flathead County Newspaper Vital Records
FVGS is providing several databases to help researchers locate death and marriage notices in Flathead area newspapers. The databases are PDF files of scanned images of a manuscript collection located at the Kalispell Family History Center. Both the death and marriage databases covering the period 1893-1910 was created by the original Flathead Valley Genealogical Society in 1978 and printed by Leonard J. Turnacliff. This database is an extraction of information from the notices that appeared in four area newspapers, rather than a simple index. Names of relatives and death or marriage locations may also be included. The newspapers extracted includes: The Daily Interlake, The Kalispell Bee, The Columbian and The Whitefish Pilot. We are also providing scanned images of extracted obituaries from the Daily Interlake. We have some available starting in the early 1960s and we will upload them as time permits.
