About this Site

This is a place to share resources for Western States genealogy—archives, libraries, record collections, and methodology.  I’ll be posting what I have come across as I have followed my ancestors’ trails Out West, and will share my new discoveries in this region.  I guess I could have titled this blog, “Wild, Wild Research in the West”,  because record-keeping was lower on these guys’ priority list than finding water, and finding water kept them pretty busy!

  1. I am a great, great grand daughter of Fergus Coalter. I have several pictures of his family if anyone is interested in them.
