About the Michigan GenWeb Project

In March and April, 1996, a group of genealogists organized the Michigan GenWeb. The idea was to provide a single entry point for all Michigan counties, where collected databases would be stored. In addition, the databases would be indexed and cross-linked, so that even if an individual were found in more than one county, they could be located in the index. At the same time, volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the collection of databases and generally oversee the contents of the web page.

This site is part of the USGenWeb Project. Created, hosted and maintained by Jan Cortez . If you would like to volunteer for a county, please contact State Coordinator, the MIGenWeb Coordinator.
