Kris Rzepczynski is an archivist at the Archives of Michigan and has a special interest in genealogical research. If you have been wanting to learn more about your family’s history, attend one or all of his one-hour genealogy classes this fall.
Drawn by high-paying manufacturing jobs and inexpensive land, thousands of people from all over Europe and the United States, including the Deep South, New England, New York, and Pennsylvania, migrated to Michigan during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. This session, aimed at researchers whose ancestral trails extend to and from Michigan, will explore these migration patterns and provide an overview of the rich and abundant genealogical resources available in print and online.
This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Orion Township Library.
