Welcome to
Montcalm County MIGenWeb!


This website is dedicated to the history of Montcalm County and its people. Montcalm County began in 1831, originally part of Ionia County. Use the navigation bar and search engines to dig around on the site. There is a great deal of information here. If you have suggestions or non-copyright items to share, please contact Paula Johnson.

As your new host, my role is to maintain this site, not do research for you. That being said, I have done a great deal of personal genealogy within Montcalm County. I may be able to point you toward a helpful resource if you have a question. ~Paula

DEDICATION:
     "To the dear, departed ones, whose busy hands changed the giant forests into fertile fields; whose love of home established the hearthstones, the tender ties of which yet bind together the heartstrings of the native born; whose patriotism gave the best of their lives and substance for the defense of their country; whose graves make sacred the soil their feet so often trod."

     Dedication from:  History of Montcalm County, by John W. Dasef, published in 1916.
