Michigan Genealogical Council
Michigan Genealogical Council


Membership in the Michigan Genealogical Council (MGC) is open to any genealogical or family history society, amateur or professional with a primary interest in genealogy.

The first MGC sponsored Workshop was hosted by Mid-Michigan Genealogical Society on 16 September 1973. Subsequent Workshops were held annually for many years, hosted by member societies around the state. The variety of locations provided an opportunity for more society members to attend these educational Workshops and to create interest from the general public.

Delegate meetings are held in January, March, May, July, September, and November. Please check the Events page for the exact date, time, and location.

The MGC Newsletter is published four times per year.
