To help you with family history, the Forum has a research room at Billings Public Library. The Genealogy Room is located on the second floor of the library, 510 North Broadway in Billings, Montana.
BILLINGS PUBLIC LIBRARY AND THE GENEALOGY ROOM CLOSED ON OCTOBER 14. PLANS ARE TO RE-OPEN THE LIBRARY ON FEBRUARY 1ST.
Beginning MARCH 1, the "Gen Room" will be staffed Monday through Thursday from 1 to 3 p.m. to provide research help and instruction. Patrons are limited to 30 minutes in the Gen Room, and only 3 people, with masks, allowed in the room at a time.
If you need help outside of the staffed hours please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment.
The card catalogue can be found on this website under Library/Archives. Before you come to the Genealogy Room you can see if we have books that you need for research. Items do NOT check out.
If you are unable to visit the Genealogy Room, you may submit research requests through this website or by mail in care of Billings Public Library.
There is a charge. (See Research Requests.) We now offer PayPal as a means of making payment online.
The Gen-Bug is published four times a year and is available to members via this website.
Older editions are available online to the general public.
