Montgomery Locals Apr. 4

By Staff | Apr 4, 2018

Thankfully warmer weather has become more frequent so if you’re anxious to get out of the house but you don’t want to be outside in the semi-cold, head down to the library and try researching your family history. The rise of websites such as Ancestry.com have made genealogy a popular hobby for many people. Thankfully over the years the Montgomery Area Public Library has kept wonderful records of the town’s history, so it’s easy to get an idea of what daily life was like in different eras. You can discover the history of churches, factories, and businesses that were important parts of daily life to your family members.

The Montgomery Area Historical Society is also a great place to learn about Montgomery’s history. While the organization is less than fifteen years old, they have amassed an impressive collection of photos, postcards, news clippings, and other pieces of the past that cover the history of Montgomery as well as the surrounding areas.
