News from the Archives of Michigan
The Indexes of Michigan Death Records from FamilySearch.org
will be added to SeekingMichigan.org early in 2014, followed by
the the images of records dated from 1921-Jan 1938. There will
be one added search field - mother's maiden name.
Following the death certificates, will be naturalizations from about
60 counties, including Wayne and other larger counties. This project
will take a little longer but it will happen! Thanks to our state
archivist, Kris Rzepczynski and all who are making this happen.
Michigan Vital Records
A fee increase from $26 to $34 went into effect on Oct 16. It is
suggested that you order from the County, rather than from the
State (except when ordering Detroit births & deaths prior to 1978).
As of November 4, Detroit Vital Records have been relocated to the
second floor of the passenger terminal at the Coleman A. Young
Airport (formerly City Airport) 11499 Connor, near Gratiot Ave.
Many new links have been added to our Web Links page.
