|Genealogy Research at the Library of Michigan and the Archives of Michigan|
With the transfer of much of the Library's purely genealogical materials to the Archives of Michigan, the web content formerly found at the michigan.gov/familyhistory web pages will now be found at Seeking Michigan (seekingmichigan.org).
