Brown Bag Lunch about Butte's Catholic Cemeteries
12:00 PM
Butte-Silver Bow Public Archives
Description:
The Butte-Silver Bow Public Archives will continue its Brown Bag Lunch series on Wednesday, January 23, with a presentation by Donna Driver about Butte’s historic Catholic cemeteries, when she will share some of St. Patrick’s and Holy Cross Cemeteries’ history as well as some genealogy advice for anyone researching their own family members.

Driver has been working at the Butte Catholic Cemeteries for the past 2 years. Her ministry of serving the Butte Community while locating and recording vital records for the deceased, and helping family members locate their loved ones, has taken her on a journey though Butte’s rich heritage. It is filled with stories of joy, sadness, humor, mystery and respect for the deceased.

The presentation will begin at noon and run about an hour at the Archives, 17 W. Quartz. Guests are encouraged to bring a sack lunch. Coffee and water will be provided.

Brown Bag Lunches are held the second and fourth Wednesdays of every month. Upcoming lectures will focus on topics of local interest. For more information, contact the Archives at 782-3280.
