October is Family History Month

October is a great month to start finding out about your family history!  First, start with writing down what you know and then work backwards from yourself.  There are many resources online to help you get started.  And don’t forget to share what you find out with your family over the holidays and to ask questions.

For Michigan resources, be sure to look at the Seeking Michigan site.  There is a ton of historical documents and information available.  My favorite is looking up Michigan Death Records from 1897-1920.  You can do this by clicking on the Advanced Search button from the main page.
