An Interesting Michigan History book

Although I read this book a few years ago, I still wanted to mention it because it deals with an unfimiliar part of Michigan's history. Tom Powers' Michigan Rogues, Desperadoes, and Cut-throats (Friede Publications: Davison, Miscigan, 2002) is, as the title suggests, about 19th Century Michigan criminals. The book only showcases a few of Michigan's criminals; however, I wanted to mention this book because of the descriptions of life in towns near the lumbering mills. I also wanted to mention this book because I plan to start posting information on doing Michigan genealogy.

Speaking of Michigan genealogy, I hope to begin posting on that topic soon.

FamilySearch Indexing

For the past several weeks I have been a volunteer with the FamilySearch Indexing program. So far, I have primarily helped with indexing the 1900 Census. Some of the handwriting has been hard to read, but most of the handwriting on the censuses images that I have transcribed and indexed were not difficult to read.

I am not a member of the LDS church. I just found about the project while searching on the internet, and I decided to volunteer.

You can find out more about FamilySearch Indexing here:

Please note, that you will have to download FamilySearch Indexing's program in order to help index the images of that are being indexed.
