Masks are Required.
(2) At the end of December, Ancestry will no longer be available online through the LIBRARY OF MICHIGAN. Will probably mean it will also not be available through the Wirt Library. Not sure about Newspapers.com and Fold3, which belong to Ancestry.

A PLACE TO ASK QUESTIONS
AND HERE'S HOW IT WORKS....
By providing a free guide that shows you exactly how
we traced one branch of our family back to the 1780's.
The guide shows you how to find billions of free -birth,
death- marriage and census records.
CELEBRATE YOUR ANCESTORS
You don't need to be a rich man...
...in order to do your genealogy. Oh sure it would be nice to have a years subscription to Ancestry or several DNA kits for the relatives.....
But the basics can be done quite cheaply and efficiently with very little money. Intrigued? Click below for a list of things to get done quickly, cheaply and on your own!
A closer look at ORAL HISTORIES...Oral histories are a valuable genealogical resource. They give a unique perspective that only one person on the face of the earth could ever give, which is that of the person giving the history. They are historical treasures for so many reasons. This is what you need to know about the value of oral histories, where to find them, and how to do them yourself with your own relatives. Click below to learn more.
MICHIGAN LIBRARY CARDS
Are you a Michigan library card holder?
Did you know that you can now access hundreds of
Michigan’s state parks, historic sites, recreation areas and

FOOD AND FAMILY HISTORY
FOOD...it binds us together as a family, with memories of those who came before and cooked for all of us.
Need a new look at an old recipe...So give these a try!
RECIPES FOR THE NEW YEAR
25 Easy Holiday Recipes We Adore
How do I know when it’s time to break out the holiday recipes? The air is chillier; the days are shorter, and all I want is to curl up by the fire and relax. This time of year is wonderful for many reasons, but holiday meals have to be at the very top!
RECIPES FOR AFTER NEW YEARS
2022 is finally, finally here – it’s time for a fresh start! Forget the year that was with these healthier recipes: you’ll find fresh salads, low-cal casseroles, keto curries, better-for-you snacks and even mango cheesecakes in this list. I'M TRYING THEM AND SO FAR... IT'S PRETTY DARN GOOD!
WANT TO BE AN ANGEL?
A search angel, (DNA or otherwise), is a person who volunteers his or her time and energy to help others find their family. They can be used by both an adoptee and a birth family. Most search angels have been through a search and family reunion themselves. There are two groups of Angels, one is Called SEARCH ANGELS, the other is called DNANGELS.

THIS JUST IN....
WHAT'S IN THE NATIONAL ARCHIVES?
GETTING STARTED WITH YOUR SEARCH
Q: Can I start my family history research by typing a name in the search box?
A: SORRY. Our search box will NOT help you find information on a specific person. However, we have many tools and resources that can lead you to information about our holdings. Many of our records have been digitized and are made available by our Digitization Partners.
SO WHAT IS REALLY HERE?
The NARA is a GIGANTIC INFORMATION CENTER. Where you can search anything about MILITARY groups, CENSUS info, IMMIGRATION and NATURALIZATION records. Check out the video below. I LEARNED ALOT.

EVERYONE knows you're the family genealogist!
