The only records to survive from the Mission's first nine years in NE Washington are a few general status reports to Rome and the entries of its pastoral service in the area. These sacramental records, however, continue uninterrupted through 1873 and so provide key genealogical data about the region's Indian population during that early period. The collection contains other useful genealogical resources for a later interval, such as school attendance records (1888-1930) and federal census results for the Flathead Reservation (1900-1949). Like many other Rocky Mountain Mission collections, this one also holds a pastoral census of Catholic families; unfortunately the compilation of this effort was not dated. The extensive series of financial records is another potential resource for biographical research, as well how these represent the central role the mission played in the region's economy
