Delta County Genealogical Society, organized in 1981, is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to promote and assist in genealogical research. Our materials of over 1000 items are housed in the Escanaba Public Library, 400 Ludington Street, Escanaba, MI. These collections are owned and maintained by the society.

For Your Information


To: Our members, former members, wannabe members and guests

At a previous meeting, we carefully read our purpose for existence- and OOPS are we are really doing it? Are we assisting anyone at all in Genealogical Research? Should we exist? Yes? No?

One of our members at the meeting is having real trouble finding a great great ancestor---very elusive.

To assist this ONE person in the research, please provide a brief write-up of your successful search for an elusive ancestor. What microfilm records, newspaper obituaries, ship manifests, city directories, notes on the back of an old photo, grand parents old stories, web sites, microfiche documents, military records, Social Security Index, ancestry.com contacts, marriage license records, death records, probate records, divorce records, wills, property descriptions, cemetery lot purchase records, family bible notes, military records, draft registration civil records and the all inclusive serendipity find, did you explore ---before the door opened and you found that ELUSIVE ANCESTOR?

Can we help this ONE person to find the ELUSIVE ANCESTOR?

Please submit your write up to:
Richard at: Email rgrpaperboy@earthlink.net
Mail to Richard at: Delta County Genealogeical Society, PO Box 442, Escanaba, MI, 49829-0442.

Please do this in PLENTY OF TIME for its presentation to this member at the next meeting on September 9, 2015 and if at all possible YOUR PERSONAL ATTENDANCE at the meeting. Just --MAYBE we donít have to pull the plug on the DCMIGS.ORG Web Site and disband the Delta County Genealogical Society. (Almost sounds like the OLD S&G Bible story EH!)

We really can provide Genealogical research assistance to our members and others. EH!

Kindest Regards

DCMIGS Organization
