Guides to County Records
In addition to the Archives’ extensive holdings of Michigan state government records, our collections also include local government records from all of Michigan's 83 counties. These county records can include tax assessments, naturalizations, probate files, poor house registers, chancery case files, occupational certifications, and more. Holdings may vary widely from county to county.
Below is a listing of Michigan county guides, detailing what records are available for each county. The records listed are available at the Archives of Michigan in Lansing or housed at our repository partners closer to the county. (Records held elsewhere are noted on the guides.)
Check back often. We update the guides as new collections arrive daily.
