Michigan Genealogy Sites

Michigan By French cartographer Guillaume de L’Isle 1718

By Sue Nekirk

Welcome to Michigan genealogy sites. So let’s start with a simple history of Michigan. Of course I always urge everyone to dig lots deeper in state and even county histories. Learning the history of any place is necessary since history happens…barriers, county and street names change constantly, even today.

Michigan – HISTORY A very short bit of history on Michigan but very informative.
