There are many genealogy-related web sites. As much as possible, we are excluding commercial genealogy sites or massive genealogy site indexes. The genealogy sites which are listed here can help you obtain primary documentation to support your family research.
If you are interested in commercial genealogy sites, please use one of the general-purpose search engines to locate them.
If you know of a free web resource that will aid those doing Michigan research, or discover a broken or obsolete link, please send an e-mail to: info@mimgc.org
