Butte Archives Launches Improved Website

BUTTE -

History buffs or anyone wanting to look deeper into their family tree can now search through the Butte Archives' massive database online.

By subscribing to the new archives web site, users will be able to search family ancestry in Butte, immigration records, and even cemetery records.

The new database was not on the original web site.

Archives staffers say now folks don't need to be in Butte to look up old documents.

"We get a lot of inquiries from Ireland, England, wherever, Italy, people coming to the archives to do research," said Lee Whitney. "Now what they can do is do that research on their own."

The website users will not be able to print documents from the database, but the archives say they don't mind helping out with printing needs.

You can visit the new and improved site at buttearchives.org.
