“Mitten Roots: Family History Research in Michigan” Monthly MCGS Meeting – Thursday, June 13 @ 6:30pm

Guest Speaker:  Kris Rzepczynski

Drawn by high-paying manufacturing jobs and inexpensive land, thousands of people from all over Europe and the United States, including the Deep South, New England, New York, and Pennsylvania, migrated to Michigan during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. This session with Archivist Kris Rzepczynski, aimed at researchers whose ancestral trails extend to and from Michigan, will explore these migration patterns and provide an overview of the rich and abundant genealogical resources available in print and online.

We would love to have you come and join us! Our meetings are held at the VFW Post #3195 – 5209 Grand Haven Road, Norton Shores, MI on the second Thursday of each month at 6:30pm.
