MGC Inclusion Statement
Black history in the United States has been rife with racism, violence, and hate. It is time to change that history. The Michigan Genealogical Council (MGC) stands in solidarity with the Black community and opposes inequality and injustice. Now more than ever, we must support one another and speak up, MGC vows to be silent no more.
Please be patient with the processing of materials sent to our PO Box. With the COVID-19 measures still in effect, we are experiencing delays with the processing and distribution of physical mail sent to our PO Box.
