We are the official repository for the Wyoming State Government’s permanent  records  as well as home to many county and municipal department records from across the state.

The Archives also cares for a large collection of papers and documents donated by individuals and a number of state and local organizations.

  1. Donnine Susan Fenex

    Hello, I am a Writer exploring my Family History in Glenrock WY. I grew up with the Tales of My Great Grandfather, William Lane Fenex Jr. leaving his home in Dallas County MO to join his older Brother, John C. Fenex as a real Wild West Cowboy and Pioneer. John had settled in Deer Creek Station and soon thereafter his younger Brother Billy joined him in this Morman Station. I know my Fenex Family built a fine, Brick House on 4th street. I am so excited at the possibility of speaking to any residents that may have known my Family, or that can point me in the right direction for my research. I am Proud to be a Fenex and look forward to all the Tales and adventures in Glenrock and Ft. Fetterman that I can include in my book!

    Respectfully Yours,

    Donnine Susan Kneller~
