Written by Michigan expert Carol McGinnis, this “Genealogy at a Glance” guide provides a quick overview of the facts you need to know in order to begin and proceed successfully with your Michigan research. In less than a handful of pages (specially laminated for heavy use), it gives you as much useful information in the space allotted as you’ll ever need.

Focusing on key record sources and materials for further reference, McGinnis first provides history and context; so before discussing the traditional record sources such as vital records and census records, and supplementary sources such as newspapers and county histories, she provides a stream of useful and interesting facts; for example, did you know that prior to 1820 two-thirds of Michigan’s settlers had French ancestry? That by the turn of the 20th century about a quarter of Michigan’s population was foreign-born? Or that researchers can often find information about their Michigan families in Canadian records?

Michigan became part of the Northwest Territory in 1787, and starting at that time an extensive body of territorial, state, and federal land records was generated. Where to find this information, and much else besides, is at the heart of this “Genealogy at a Glance” publication, which also identifies the best books in the field of Michigan genealogy and provides an indispensable list of major record repositories as well as a list of the best online sources for Michigan research. By design, Michigan Genealogy Research can be read at a glance and with total confidence that your research is pointed in the right direction.
