The Michigan GenWeb Project

In March and April, 1996, a group of genealogists organized the MIGenWeb Project. 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.

My name is , and I am the person responsible for Marquette County. If you would like to contribute your information to this page, please let me know. If you would like to host a county, contact . MIGenWeb Project.
