To
Shiawassee County
Michigan

Shiawassee County was formed in 1822 and organized in 1837.  It was named for the Shiawassee River, which translates as "River that twists about."  The Shiawassee River enters the county near the southwest corner and flows through several towns and villages until it exits the county near the center of the northern boundary and empties into Saginaw Bay.

The county seat is Corunna.
As of the 2010 census, the population of the county is 70,648. 

I am your host, Nancy Bliven. My father's family lived thorough out the southern counties of Michigan and I will be adding a lot of information that I have found to our website. You can help me and other researchers in Shiawassee County by sending us any information you might have on the History of the county, towns and townships.
