  1. Greetings, When I realized 2014 was the 100th anniversary of our right as women to vote I felt I must also contribute, remind, educate on this years ride. I am a long rider, (and equestrian travel.) Information regarding my rides will be found on my website. I am including in my talks this year stories of women who have influenced my life AND also reminding people of this very important anniversary. I leave the first of April, heading for Maine and will take 5 or 6 weeks to cross Montana. If there is anything I can do to help besides speaking out as I do, Please, I would so love to be included in on the celebration. As a “lady Long Rider” I have a close affinity to those women whose shoulders I stand on, who have helped paved the roads I travel on, making it possible for me to do what I do.
    Sincerely, Bernice Ende

  2. Hello, I am a British music historian, specialising in books and articles about the mandolin and guitar (published in the UK and US by Oxford University Press).

    In recent years, much of my published work has focused on the largely forgotten era of women’s mandolin and guitar bands in the UK (and US), between the mid-1880s and WW1. In this regard, I was interested to see an image on your web page dated APRIL 3, 2014 BY WHM “Champions: The Girls of Fort Shaw” of an all-woman mandolin club. Do you have any more information about this photograph, particularly a precise date? Any further details would be of great interest to me. Thanks.

  3. Hello, I read with interest ‘There’s No Place like Home: The Role of the Montana State Orphanage’. For years I have been trying to track down my adopted grandfather’s birth family. He was born in 1904; I believe his birth name was Leon Bromley. Do you happen to know if there are birth records of the souls who may have been residents during that time? Sorry, I know it is a long shot, but doesn’t hurt to ask. Have a great holiday, and thank you in advance.

  4. Hi I am interested in information about the Metis Laframboise Dumont women who spent time in Montana in the mid 1800’s , if anyone can point me in the right direction or has information to share I would appreciate hearing it. Also about Basile Laurence’s wife Agathe Bousquet

  5. March is Women’s History Month. Much of my work in music and theatre over the past five decades has been historical in nature. My original Legacy series of programs illustrates topics with relevant music, lies, legends and a few laughs; I’ve toured my shows across the region and across the ocean with my signature Education Through Entertainment platform for much of my long career.
    “LadyHeart” is a 60-minute family friendly, uplifting, fast-paced interactive show to celebrate the women you know and the woman you are. I’m attaching a link to a song from that program. I’d love to deliver more material but alas, cannot attach those things to fields like this.
    Meanwhile, you can see/hear me at, CD Baby, FB, ReverbNation and Youtube.
    Let’s visit about bringing LadyHeart to you and yours for a seminar, a convention, fund raiser event or gathering in March 2024.

  6. I am beyond excited to have found your website and am wanting to connect with someone from your organization regarding a new organization that started just a few years ago. Our organization is IWD406 (International Women’s Day for Montana). We started with luncheons to celebrate women of Montana and now its formed into a statewide organization. We are building a website in hopes to bring together women from all walks of life, professions, non professions, industries, ages and ethnicity in hopes to bridge connections between our communities. We offer online connections as well as in person once a month meetups to connect and celebrate women. We are hosting a gala next year and would like to work with women’s organizations throughout the state. I would love to connect to someone in your organization to discuss opportunities to bring women’s historical education to our upcoming events. Should you be interested collaboration or partnership, please feel to reach out to Julie Walz, founder and director of IWD406, at Thank you and kindest regards
