This week’s blogging prompt is the State of Michigan. Blog about an ancestor or your families connection to Michigan. If you don’t have any connections to Michigan, find a Michigan resource useful for genealogy research to highlight and write about. This week’s prompt runs from 6/30/2013 – 7/6/2013. If you choose to follow along, I would appreciate a mention to the Hidden Genealogy Nuggets website.
I have yet to find any family links to Michigan, so I will highlight one genealogical resource from Michigan. Seeking Michigan is an interesting website. Under the discover option, you can look for death records, Michigan State Census records (1884, 1894), review plat maps and find information on Michigan in the civil war.
If you have ancestors from Michigan, be sure to check out this valuable resource.
