In the absence of the usual statewide genealogy organization, the Library of Michigan is a key institution holding that state's genealogy community together. It's sponsoring a day-and-a-half seminar in Lansing July 25-26 that anyone with research targets in Michigan will want to consider. Just a sampling of the topics to be covered:
- finding Revolutionary War ancestors at the Library of Michigan
- Michigan township records, "a genealogical gold mine"
- Treasures of the Archives of Michigan
- the digitization project for state death records 1897-1920
- Ceil Wendt Jensen, CG, on newspaper research
- the Local History and Genealogy Department at Loutit District Library in Grand Haven
