Welcome to
Muskegon County,

This county is hosted by:
Courtney Birkes

Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing genealogical and historical data and placing it online for the free use of all researchers

We're looking for folks who share our dedication to putting data online and are interested in helping this project be as successful as it can be. If you are interested in joining our group, and becoming a Host for any of Michigan's counties, view our Volunteer Page for further information and then contact Kim

Check your attics!
Dust off your family scrapbooks!
We're looking for DATA for this site!!!

We regret that we are unable to do personal research for you.
