Finding Our Ancestors in "Michigan Trails"

Very happy to meet you all. My name is Christine Walters and I hope very quickly I'll soon know some of your names and interests. Researching in Wayne County is a maze of "trails". There is a never-ending source of material here so I know, without a doubt, you will never get bored. I will be posting information regularly so if you have anything you'd like to share with the researchers, we would love to have it. The items you send us will help me in a thousand ways and more importantly will help the reseacher. We are always be looking for Obituaries, County and City Histories, Biographies, News Articles, Cemeteries and most especially I'll be looking for you Pioneer Families. I sincerely regret that I'm unable to help you with personal research. I don't have the resources for one thing, I don't live in Michigan and lastly I don't have the time.... I'm also the host of Chippewa and Mackinac Counties so I do keep myself pretty busy.
