October is Family History Month, a time to spend climbing the family tree. Along with learning about your family is understanding the time period or region where they lived. Fortunately for Michigan, the University of Michigan hosts 428 digitized titles featuring the county histories of Michigan.
Every county in Michigan is afforded a brief (or not so brief) history along with biographies and atlases. Grand Rapids even has its own history section. Browse and sort by subject to get an alphabetized listing by county.
