ALPENA — For 47 years, the Northeastern Michigan Genealogical Society has helped individuals create their family trees.
Like many other service organizations, NEMGS is recovering from the COVID pandemic with a small number of local members. It’s nice to have members from afar, but it’s even more fun when local members come together to give presentations, workshops, share new websites and family discoveries.
Each year the association offers six programs that are free and open to the public. They also support the genealogical collections of Alpena and surrounding county libraries.
This year, the association is making a special effort to grow its local membership by offering a NEMGS 2023 special package, “A Family History Quest.” This package includes his one-year membership of the group and a bus trip to the Michigan State Archives and Library on Saturday, May 20th. Hasn’t been online for years. The package fee is $30. For more information or to purchase a package, visit the NEMGS website at nemgs.org and click on Events, or visit the Besser Museum in Northeast Michigan.
Additionally, on Saturday, January 21, at 1:00 pm, the Society will offer its first family history class at the Alpena County Library.
To better inform those interested in the NEMGS 2023 package, the association will sponsor an archivist at the Michigan State Archives on Saturday, April 22nd at 1:00 pm. Genealogical information for the provinces east of the Mississippi, Quebec, and Ontario is kept at the Michigan National Archives. In addition, he covers his Michigan archival collection, including naturalizations, probate records, imprisonment records, war records, and other important archival his items.
