Researching your family's history is called the study of genealogy. Tracing ancestry was once much more difficult than it is today; online resources have made tracing ancestry comparatively easy. Before diving in, create an outline of your family tree by filling in as many blanks as you can with names. Then, you can work to add to your family history by interviewing family members and tracking down records. Organization of your genealogical project will help you manage the large amount of data.

The maxim “know thyself” was well known among the ancient Greeks and to this day people still recite those wise words – especially when searching online for “how-to-genealogy.” Casually known as one’s family history or tree, genealogy is the study of family lineages and defined by the Society of Genealogists as the “…establishment of a Pedigree by extracting evidence, from valid sources, of how one generation is connected to the next.” In addition to helping individuals figure out their roots, genealogy can also offer a more-detailed view of their family’s role in the grand scheme of history. While many people are motivated by the possibility of discovering that their relatives may have been wealthy or famous, it can be illuminating to learn about one’s own heritage and rewarding to pass that knowledge down to future generations. Genealogical information can bring families closer together, offer a new perspective, and guide future decisions. Best of all, it allows one to… know thyself.

Through genealogy, researchers find out more about themselves and their families. The search may seem endless, as one piece of information leads to new stories, places, and people. Genealogy can improve lives by helping people identify and treat health risks. And genealogists hold a special spot in the hearts of their families. After all, genealogists know who to invite to the next family reunion.

The County Register of Historic Sites and the Ingham County Historical Marker Program were established in 1975. Today this effort is to serve the citizens of Ingham County through the identification, designation and protection of historical properties. Historical markers benefit communities and the entire county by sparking further interest in local history. Dedication ceremonies, which celebrate the installation of the markers, focus attention on historic preservation. Markers are well documented histories easily accessible to the public and they represent the importance a community places in its heritage. The County Register of Historic Sites does not offer protection. A marker may help to discourage some development projects by serving as an obvious reminder that a site is historically significant.

The Michigan County Histories and Atlases Digitization Project is comprised of 428 digitized titles (many composed of multiple volumes) published before 1923. The collection offers all members of the community free keyword searching and page-by-page access to digitized reproductions of Michigan county histories and atlases as a resource for historical and genealogical research. The collection is made possible, in part, through a generous Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) grant. Additional funding was provided by Michigan Council of Library Directors institutions and a Michigan Digitization and Preservation for Access grant. Titles were selected from Frances Loomis's Michigan Biography Index (Detroit: Detroit Public Library, 1946), William Miles' Michigan Atlases and Plat Books (Lansing: State Library Services, 1975), Bentley Historical Library holdings, and the Research Publications microfilm publication County and Regional Histories of the Old Northwest.

The Michigan Family History Network was created in 1999 to house data that we had and wanted to share with other researchers. After trying a few of the free servers, and not being satisfied with the security, or what programming we could use that would make the site easier to build, we decided to pay for our own server space. This has allowed us to put more data up quickly instead of slogging through coding to present the data in large sets of records such as the Civil War data, and the School Record projects on thousands of small pages.

Records available online require the first and last name of the passenger of interest. Most of the records contain details of where the immigrant was planning to stay once they arrived in the country. On record are also names of family members or friends that traveled with the passenger. These records can give an insight into lost or distant family members. The records may show pictures from the ships they arrived on.
