Michigan Genealogical
Historical Society Publications



The Sunfield Historical Society, Sunfield, MI has announced the publication of two new titles, I Remember Grandma: Florence Ervay Root, by Sarah Austin Myers, and Sebewa High School 1891-1971, by Nancy Stemler Thompson. The release of each coincides with this year's annual local festival, the Sunfield Farmers' Picnic, held in Sunfield's Floyd VanBuren village park each August.

Both books have local history themes, each offering endearing glimpses into families and institutions from the area's past and each with plots beginning before the turn of the 20th Century and spanning into the middle of the 20th Century and modern times. I Remember Grandma features a granddaughter's recollections of Florence Ervay Root, a very strong and spiritual woman whose poetry reveals her connection to her family as well as her delightful sense of humor. Sebewa High School 1891-1971 contains student, teacher, and enrollments, memorabilia, and class and reunion photos. The surnames of many who attended Sebewa High School have become mainstays in Sunfield and surrounding communities. I Remember Grandma sells for $12.00 and Sebewa High School for $20.00. Proceeds benefit the Sunfield Historical Society, which is a thriving group that is very active in promoting and preserving local and Eaton County history.

Previous Sunfield Historical Society publications are also for sale and include The Sunfield High School History, $25.00, Myrties Memories, $12.00, Sunfield Cemetery Guide, $20.00, and the Society also has copies of Sunfield Town & Country, published by the Sunfield History Seekers, $30.

These and all Sunfield Historical Society titles will be on sale at the Society's booth at the Farmers Picnic, beginning at 2 p.m. on Saturday, August 19. In addition, copies will be on sale at the Sunfield District Library's annual used book sale, which takes place the same weekend and is held at the library Thursday, Friday, August 17 and 18, from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The library is located at 112 Main Street, in the village of Sunfield. Copies may be ordered anytime via mail by sending check or money order to Sunfield Historical Society, PO Box 251, Sunfield, MI 48890 (add $5.00 to the cover price for postage). Copies of the two newest titles, as well as all Society publications, will also be available at the library during open hours following the Picnic, while supplies last.
