Michigan's Abrams Genealogy Seminar July 25-26

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"
  • the digitization project for state death records 1897-1920
  • Ceil Wendt Jensen, CG, on newspaper research
