Michigan is home to 83 counties and most Michigan records are kept at the county level. Check the Michigan Gen Web website for your county of interest. Many of the counties have information for reseaching in that county.
Michigan became a state in 1837. It wasn't until after the War of 1812 that people started migrating to the Michigan Territory. Many settlers came from New York, New England region, and Canada.
Due to Michigan's close proximity to the Canadian border it is important to check for your ancestors here.
