Archival Photos from UM Part of Best State Websites for Genealogy
The Montana Memory Project (MMP) was recently included in Family Tree Magazine’s list of Best State Websites for Genealogy for 2015. The Mansfield Library has contributed a number of collections to MMP, including over 6500 images from the Library’s Archival Photographs collection.
The photographs above are just three of the many images from UM in MMP which might support genealogical research. From left to right:
- Hashitani family - This photo, taken in about 1926, comes from the Henry Hashitani Diaries and Photographs collection. Hashitani emigrated from Japan to Seattle in 1903. He worked on the railroad near Missoula in the early 1900s and later lived in Idaho and Oregon.
- Violet Tellier – This image of Violet Tellier with a camera was taken by her father, Albert, in 1919. The Telliers lived in St. Ignatius and were of Salish and Nez Perce descent. This image is one of 50 in the Albert Tellier Photographs collection donated to the UM Archives and Special Collections by Tellier’s grandson, Richard Matt.
- Thomas McDonald – This formal portrait of Thomas McDonald is also from the Albert Tellier collection. McDonald was probably a friend and neighbor of the Telliers. According to genealogical records McDonald married a Finley, a name which also appears in the Tellier family tree.
These photographic resources are made available on MMP to anyone worldwide through the collaborative efforts of staff in the Mansfield Library’s Archives and Special Collections, Digital Initiatives, and Bibliographic Management Services units. The Library is grateful to the individuals and families, including the descendants of Henry Hashitani and Albert Tellier, who have gifted their personal collections to the Mansfield Library.
